Designing a Fatigue Resistant Roller (2 credit hours)
This course is an analysis and overview of the basic design method employed to manufacture rollers used in many kinds of machinery applications.    The evolution of simple design, useful applications, advantages and disadvantages are discussed.  Considerations of factors that affect fatigue life of machine parts are explored.  Included in this course are descriptions of the most common causes of fatigue failures and how to avoid them.  This course explores the use of forgings in place of weldments and demonstrates how one was applied to enhance the fatigue life of the rollers while making a major reduction in manufacturing cost.
