Industrial Engineering – C.A.D


Programme (detailed contents):


Common topics: air compressor and a scooter.


    Introduction to mechanical design based on mechanisms found in industry. Different graphical representations are used:


-       schematic,


-       mechanical drawing for shapes and dimensions,


-       3-D representation with C.A.D. showing congestion, interference.




The BIM teaching is as follows:


- Getting started with a suite of CAD to BIM

- Representation of building from 2D to 3D

- Modeling on BIM software

- Visual programming logic to explore parametric conceptual designs and automate tasks.

- Computing on existing BIM models

- Data extraction for load carrying systems




 Tutorial and lab-work



 Main difficulties for students:

 Preparatory work


At the end of this module, the student will have understood and be able to explain (main concepts):


The basic concepts of conception (design)


The student will be able to:


- define a pivot link,

- define an assembly of parts,

- draw a diagram (model),

- graphical representation of a mechanism.

- produce 2D and 3D graphical representations

- modeling civil engineering projects elements

- examine a numerical model to extract production data

- understand the mechanical behavior of civil engineering projects.

Needed prerequisite

1st year introduction to industrial techniques.

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...
