The course aims at providing further knowledge to what was learned in the base courses of mechanical and automotive design. In particular, the course provides the fundamentals of machine component design and analysis, with selected reference to machine components used in vehicles and to their integration into complex systems. of One of the course objectives is the application of previously acquired knowledge on the strength of materials under static, dynamic, thermal and fatigue loads to the design of the machine components.

The course is organized in theoretical lectures and classroom practices/tutorials. During the tutorials in the classroom, the students will develop exercises on the topics covered during lectures. Students will also be asked to develop small projects related to motor vehicle components and subsystems, applying in a comprehensive/integrated way some of the methods for design and verification explained during the course.

The final exam is devoted to evaluate the knowledge acquired in Machine design. The final exam consists in a written part and an elective oral part, both of them take place according to the general procedures defined by Politecnico.
The written part generally consists in the solution of a couple of design and verification problems. During the tutorials, students will develop the solution of problems similar to those they will be asked to solve during the written exam. During the written exam the student may use, for consultation purpose, books, the lecture slides and the tutorial materials.
The oral part of the exam is devoted to verify the level of knowledge of the Machine Design topics that have been taught during the lectures. The ability of the student to explain from the theoretical point of view the asked questions, making use of formulas, diagrams and sketches, is of particular importance. It is also of relevance the ability of the student to explain technical constructive solutions by means of handmade sketches. To pass the written test, the student has to obtain an evaluation equal or larger than 18/30 for each of the problems that form the test. In order to take the oral exam, the candidate must have passed the written test. The written and oral parts of Machine Design have to be taken in the same exam session. Booking through the portal is mandatory.

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

The final exam consists of a written part and an elective oral part, both of them take place according to the general procedures defined by Politecnico.
The goal of the written part is to check the achievement, by the candidate, of the capability to apply the methods explained in the course to the design of mechanical parts; that of the oral part is to assess the awareness of the candidate about these methods.
The written part generally consists in the solution of a set of design and verification problems, similar, as type and difficulty, to those proposed to the students in the tutorials along the semester. During the written exam the students may use, for consultation purpose, books, lecture slides and material of the tutorial on paper (the use of laptops, tablets, smartwatches and any device that can be connected to the web is not permitted). The duration of the written exam is two hours. Booking through the portal is mandatory.
The oral part of the exam is devoted to verify the level of knowledge of the Machine Design topics that have been taught during the lectures. The ability of the student to discuss about the theory of the topics, making use of formulae, diagrams and sketches, is the main subject of the exam. It is also of relevance the ability of the student to describe technical constructive solutions by means of handmade sketches. The oral part consists of 2 or 3 theory questions. Usually, but not mandatorily, the student can organize his/her response on sheets of paper, before discussing the main points with the examiner. The total duration of the oral exam is about 30-40 minutes.
To pass the written test, the student must obtain a sufficient evaluation in each of the problems that form the test. In order to take the oral exam, the candidate must have passed the written test. The written and oral parts have to be taken in the same exam session.
The grade is calculated on a 30 points scale, in case of absence of the oral part it is scaled to a maximum of 24. If the oral part is taken, the final grade is determined as a variation (increment or decrement) starting from the score of the written part (not scaled).

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
