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 3 topics:

• T1 Hydraulics and simulations on AMESim
Understanding of the basic components of fluid power systems (oleohydraulic). Implementation on AMESim based on concrete applications to analyze the dynamic behavior of a circuit and illustrate uses of these simulation software.
(Lectures: 3 x 1.5 hours = 4.5 hours / Tutorials: 6 x 1.5 hours = 9 hours)

•T2 Analysis of linear and non-linear structures
Reinforcement of the Structural Design course of the first semester and learning of the elastoplastic computation of structures when they are stressed beyond the elastic domain (ANSYS Workbench, ANSYS Mechanical APDL).
(Lectures: 4 x 1.5 hours = 6 hours / Tutorials: 5 x 1.5 hours = 7.5 hours / Project: 10 x 1.5 hours = 15 hours)

• T3 Dynamic System Behaviour and FEA
Modelling dynamic problems, simulation of dynamic behaviour. Modelling of finite elements and simulation of mechanism behaviour (ANSYS Workbench, ANSYS Mechanical APDL).
(Lectures: 3 x 1.5 hours = 4.5 hours / Tutorials: 32x 1.5 hours = 3 hours / Laboratory: 6 x 1.5 hours = 9 hours / Project: 1.5 hour)


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 = 15%.
Attendance to lectures and tutorials is compulsory.

Final online exam = 50%

N1 = (QCM + CC)/2
N2 = Oral ou examen


The course exists in the following branches:
