Design is the fundamental goal of all engineering endeavors. While there is no single accepted definition of engineering design, for our purposes, it can be thought of as the process that culminates in the specification of how a system is to be produced so that the needs and requirements that were identified in the design process are met. The “system” to which we refer might be as simple as a bolt or as complex as the Apollo missions. The need might be to hold two steel plates together or to put a human on the moon. The requirements to which we refer can be technical, environmental, political, and financial, among others. One of the hard things about engineering design is that neither the process used to reach the final design nor the final result of the design is unique (this is in contrast to the typical homework or exam problem you have been given where there is only one correct answer). There are generally many (sometimes infinitely many) designs that will satisfy the requirements of most design specifications. In fact, it can be argued that Dynamics is about modeling a mechanical system and then studying its behavior as parameters of the system are varied.

In the design process, mechanicals are generally concerned with the determination of a variety of mechanical responses such as deflection, stress, strain, and temperature in machines or structures due to imposed forces. Mechanicals are also concerned with relating these responses to the prediction of structures or machine’s fatigue life, durability, and safety, as well as to the choice of materials and fabrication procedures. Dynamics plays an important role in this determination since accelerations are an important cause of forces in mechanical systems (via the equations developed by Newton and Euler). There are several methods to structure the design process. Regardless of the method, the design process should be done iteratively through identifying needs, prioritizing, making value decisions, and exploiting physical laws to develop a sound solution that optimizes the objectives while satisfying the constraints that have been identified. As you progress through your education in your chosen field of study, you will learn about structured and standard procedures for

design, including information about performance standards, safety standards, and design codes. At a minimum, a mechanical design product must

Accomplish the design goals. Not fail during normal use. Minimize hazards. Attempt to anticipate and account for all foreseeable uses. Be thoroughly documented and archived.

In addition, a design should also take into consideration

Cost of manufacture, purchase, and ownership. Ease of manufacture and maintenance. Energy efficiency in manufacture and use. Impact on the environment in its manufacture, use, and retirement.
