Kinematics and Power Transmission


Gears: function, tooth generation and profile, corrections, spur and helical gears,

meshing properties.

Concepts for heat treatment of steels in relation to a given application.

These concepts are put into practice during a project in which a steel alloy will

be characterised for hardness so that the correct heat treatment (quenching, tempering) can be chosen.


Understand how gears and couplings work

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
