1 Mechanical Engineering Ohio University AEP’s Gavin Plant David Bayless 248 Stocker

2 What is Mechanical Engineering? Mechanical Engineering is the profession related to the study and use of machines. Machines range from automobiles to the human body Machines require power (thermodynamics, combustion) Machines pollute (air pollution control) Machines move, so their motion must be understood, both by itself (kinematics) and in the surrounding air (fluids) Machines must be constructed (manufacturing) Machines have to be made from something (materials) Machines make heat that has to be removed (heat transfer and fluid mechanics)

3 What is Mechanical Engineering? Biomechanics Robotics Machine Design CAD/CAM

4 What is Mechanical Engineering? Power Generation Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Fluid Mechanics

5 What is Mechanical Engineering? Air Pollution Control Fluid Mechanics Heat Transfer Thermodynamics Chemistry

6 What is Mechanical Engineering? Aeronautics and Aerospace Fluid Mechanics Machine Design Combustion

7 What is Mechanical Engineering? Manufacturing Robotics Material Science CAD/CAM Design

8 What is Mechanical Engineering? Automotive Engineering Everything!

9 What is Mechanical Engineering? Management
