    OVERALL PURPOSE OF THE COURSE – AND COURCE DESCRIPTIONS
    The purpose of teaching in the fields of subject construction and technical documentation is that the students gain knowledge, skills and competences within the basic theoretical and methodological basis in three main subject areas mentioned below.

    1. ENGINEERING MECHANICS
    The content of the teaching is based on various academic elements:
    a) Kinematics (motion theory).
    b) Friction / equilibrium / inclined plane.
    c) Work-energy and equilibrium considerations based on the energy equation.
    d) Power and transmission. Including the energy transfer in a transmission system and loss of energy through a transmission system.
    e) Gearings and winch. Including how exchange can take place in a transmission system.

    2. DIMENSIONING OF TRANSMISSION ELEMENTS
    The content of the course is based on the teaching of engineering mechanics, which on a general level forms the academic foundation for the dimensioning of transmission elements (alias machine elements or dynamically influenced structures).
    3. TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION
    The teaching is based on the technical documentation process, which is part of a given product development context. This includes how to choose tolerances and surface finishes from a functional, production and financial perspective.
    From a coherent perspective, teaching is based on mechanical physics, which subsequently forms the basis for being able to dimensionally and technically document the results of a product development process.

    CASE DESCRIPTION AND EVALUATION
    The completion of the course is structured around a group-based case assignment.
    The results of the assignment are presented in the end of the course.
    Each group consists of 3-5 members and 15 minutes are allocated for the presentation per group.

    THE EXPECTED CONTENT DISPLAYED IN THE PRSENTATION:

    1) A self-selected arrangement involving some kind of power and energy transfer through a transmission system. It could, for example, be some kind of motorized raising / lowering arrangement - for example for boats in a port.
    The overall arrangement can be presented as hand-drawn sketches.

    2) A more detailed sketch of the transmission system itself. Including how the various elements of the transmission system are composed.
    Transmission system can be presented as hand-drawn sketches.

    3) Calculations of the power applied to the system are shown in the presentation.
    It is important that the calculations include sketches that illustrate the system and the various loads that work in and on the system.

    4) CAD work drawings are made of one or two parts for the transmission system, where tolerances, surface roughness and choice of materials, etc. is explicitly stated.
    Choice of tolerances, etc. is described and explained in the presentation.

    5) To the extent permitted by time, a:
    a) A calculation of one or more machine elements.
    b) A dimension chain analysis.

  • Type of instruction and practical application of learning objectives
    The teaching in this course is based on a case assignment. The content of the teaching is based on the fact that the learning activities associated with the case are supported with class teaching and exercises. The exercises can consist of both individual assignments and group work
  • Exam

    The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)

hours of preparation
The figure shows the extent of workload related to the subject divided into different study activities.

In the subject Construction and technical documentation (EN) you will receive 43 hours of instruction, which corresponds to 57 lessons (1 lesson = 45 min.) and 22% of your total workload for the subject.

The teaching primarily consists of the following activities: classroom teaching, cases, group work, exercises.
The preparation primarily consists of the following activities: reading the curriculum, group work.
