Kinematics and Power Transmission
Gears: function, tooth generation and profile, corrections, spur and helical gears,
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...
