Engineering analysis involves the application of scientific analytic principles and processes to reveal the properties and state of the system, device or mechanism under study.Generally, in our study in mechanical engineering, analysis is the determination of the effects of loads on physical structures and their components. It incorporates in the fields of applied
mechanics, materials science etc to compute a structure’s deformations, internal forces, stresses, support reactions, accelerations, and stability.
Approaches for Analysis
Generally, there are three approaches to the analysis of a given system/body:
- Strength of Materials approach
- Elasticity Approach (continuum mechanics),
- Finite element Approach.
The first two make use of analytical formulations, which apply mostly to simple linear elastic models, lead to closed-form solutions, and can often be solved by hand. The finite element approach is actually a numerical method for solving differential equations generated by theories of mechanics such as elasticity theory and strength of materials. However, the finite-element method depends heavily on the processing power of computers and is more applicable to structures of arbitrary size and complexity.
In this course, the students study all the above three approaches for solving real problems both analytically and through computer skills. The students coming out of this course will attain rich knowledge and gain confidence to solve real problem in Industries/Research wing.
The motto of this course is
“BECOME QUALITY ENGINEERS”
Importance of Analysis in Industry
In Industry, new problems always encounter and an attention must be paid to solve the issues. When a problem is encountered, they need to see all sides of a problem to come up with an acceptable solution. Analysis involves studying the system and seeing how they interact with the entities outside as well as inside the system. Then industries come out with detailed specifications of what the system will accomplish based on the user requirements. Systems design will take the requirements and analysis into consideration and come out with a high level and low level design that will form the blue print to the actual solution to the problem in hand. In this dynamic world, analysis and design have to look into making systems that a flexible enough to accommodate changes as they are inevitable in any system.But most of the projects in industry fail due to improper knowledge on technical aspects of the systems. The major problem is that the industry uses the computer/FEM approach to solve the problem with minimum analytical approach. The people may not be able to tackle the problem analytically and compare the results acquired from FEM approach.
Also, during the release of the product in Industry, the consumer should accept the particular feature in the product. The product should satisfy the customer in quality and translating the use of product into action. The industry finds it difficult to understand the practical significance of research findings; one might be as “level of stress”.
From the above the following are the findings required in Industry
- Lack of Analytical Knowledge about the subject
- More oriented towards computer based coaching/experience without much
knowledge about basics
Benefit of this Course
This course is well designed covering the analytical aspects on core subjects in Mechanical Engineering. This knowledge is very much essential in imparting to the students/community to get benefited for recruitment in major companies. More companies in and around Bangalore require a people with analytical knowledge of the subject. This course will fulfill the gap between the Industry requirement and knowledge updating to the students. The course also explains the comparison between the analytical approach and computer aided process to a particular problem.
