ENGS 146: Computer-Aided Mechanical Engineering Design
An investigation of techniques useful in the mechanical design process. Topics include computer graphics, computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, computer-aided (finite element) analysis, and the influence of manufacturing methods on the design process. Project work will be emphasized. Enrollment is limited to 24 students.
Wiggle Car Race 2012: Dartmouth engineers in ENGS 146 created, built, and relay-raced Wiggle Cars around the halls of Thayer School.
Wobble Car Race 2011: Students in ENGS 146 create, construct, and race wobble cars on campus.
Twist Car Race 2010: Students designed, built, and tested twist cars for their Computer-Aided Mechanical Engineering Design class and then raced relay style around the halls of Thayer.
Twist Car Race 2009: Students designed, built, and tested twist cars for their Computer-Aided Mechanical Design class. Watch as they wiggle around the halls of Thayer School.
Hovercraft: The Thayer School of Engineering students who won the 2008 Engineering Sciences 146 Computer-Aided Mechanical Engineering Design prize present their project.
Robot Kangaroo: David Manegold designed and constructed this robot for ENGS 146 with Professor Laura Ray.
