SUUUpoRT - Design Of Machine Elements

Through: Lavrenko Iaroslav,  National Technical University of Ukraine "Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute", Kyiv, Ukraine


Students are enabled to understand that design of machine elements, which studies the calculation and design of various machine components, plays a crucial role in engineering. By learning about general principles of designing parts and components, as well as criteria of efficiency, reliability, and manufacturability, students gain the necessary skills to create safe and effective machine designs. They also explore topics such as loading of machine elements, material selection, construction of design schemes, and theoretical foundations of mechanical gearing. Through hands-on practice and theoretical study, students develop the ability to design and calculate shafts, axes, bearings, gears, gearboxes, and couplings for different types of machinery.


Students become aware that of particular relevance in the field of machine design is the analysis and installation of sliding and rolling bearings. By mastering the calculation of elasticity of bearings and understanding the importance of materials and heat treatment in shaft design, students are equipped to create durable and high-performing machine components. They also learn about the calculation of springs, which are essential for absorbing shock and maintaining proper tension in various mechanical systems. Furthermore, students gain insight into the basic design of gearboxes and the selection of gearboxes and couplings based on the specific requirements of different applications. Overall, students are prepared to tackle the challenges of designing machine elements that meet the demands of modern engineering practices.
