The engineer must specify and use design methods and tools for innovation and preliminary drafts in industry. The engineer must know how to take into account a maximum number of constraints related to the product's life cycle during its industrial stage. When developing manufactured products, the physical behaviour of the product must be taken into account during its design.

This course allows students to use their know-how and develop the necessary skills to carry out product dimensioning efficiently when designing.

The aims of this course are to:

• Apply product pre-dimensioning techniques with a systemic approach,
• Analyse the complex behaviour of a product,
• Study specific examples of basic non-linear simulation,
• Make a dynamic behaviour analysis of a product.




The content is divided into 2 topics:

• T1 Dimensioning Design, Modelling systems (AMESim, Simulink, etc.):
Students learn about simplifying complex mechanical systems in order to carry out pre-dimensioning of mechanical components. Students must understand the basic components of the software used and apply this software in electro(-hydrau)-mechanical situations. Students can use concrete examples to illustrate the different uses of this software.
(Lectures: 4 x 1.5 hours = 6 hours / Tutorials: 8 x 1.5 hours = 12)

• T2 Dynamic System Behaviour and FEA
Modelling dynamic problems, simulation of dynamic behaviours. Modelling of finite elements and simulation of mechanism behaviour.
(Lectures: 3 x 1.5 hours = 4.5 hours / Tutorials: 4 x 1.5 hours = 6 hours / Laboratory: 10 x 1.5 hours = 15 hours)


Notions of finite elements and mechanical engineering design.


Continual assessment on each topic, through reports carried out in tutorials and laboratory work:
T1 = 15%, T2 = 20%, T3 = 25%, T4 = 20%.

Attendance to lectures and tutorials is compulsory.

Final written exam = 20%

N1 = 40% QCM, 60% notes de TD/TP
N2 = oral ou examen


The course exists in the following branches:

  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master PD - Semester 8
  • Curriculum - M1 Industrial Engineering - Semester 8
