Abstract

Computer Aided Design (CAD) represents one of the key lectures in the studies of mechanical and process engineering as well as several other engineering disciplines. Furthermore, Computer Aided x (CAx) systems are firmly established in the product development process. A new concept of teaching for engineering studies at the Technical University of Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt) derived by project based learning is introduced using CAx process chains i.e. the CAD-Multi Body Simulation (MBS) process chain. For the first time in engineering degree a 3D CAD model is consistently used by different process chains in multiple lectures and exercises during the whole engineering study. The early integration of this 3D CAD model in the second semester lays a foundation for its usage in further lectures, courses, projects and theses. Due to the fact, that this 3D CAD model embodies a university groups´ race car, students are able to deepen their knowledge within the university group “TU Darmstadt Racing Team e.V. (DART)”. Therefore, synergies between private and student activities are promoted, e.g. students acquire knowledge about automotive engineering. Besides the virtual implementation and validation, concepts can use the prototype for implementation and validation. The suitability of the 3D CAD model for CAD education in engineering studies especially the modelling and assembling of parts and assemblies is validated by the coached exercise of the course “Computer Aided Design”. The design education of students with mechanical engineering orientated fields of studies is held as a mandatory course in the second semester of mechanical engineering degrees at TU Darmstadt since 1995 and is solely taught with modern 3D CAD Systems. The MBS process chain is validated by several projects and theses using the McNeil Swendler Corp.(MSC) Software Automated Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems (ADAMS) Car. Students run MBS by using the 3D CAD model. Besides driving maneuvers, stamp tests are simulated. In this context the entire MBS process chain is passed. The 3D CAD model serves as a basis for structures, geometry and the representation of kinematic chains, guided by the 3D CAD models geometry.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) ist eine der wichtigsten Vorlesungen im Bereich der Maschinen- und Verfahrenstechnik sowie weiterer Ingenieurdisziplinen. Darüber hinaus sind computerunterstützte Systeme (CAx) fest im Produktentwicklungsprozess etabliert. Ein neues Konzept des Ingenieurstudiums an der Technischen Universität Darmstadt (TU Darmstadt), das durch projektbasiertes Lernen abgeleitet wird, wird mit Hilfe von CAx-Prozessketten, d. h. Der Prozessketten-CAD-Multi-Body-Simulation (MBS), eingeführt. Zum ersten Mal im Ingenieurstudium wird ein 3D-CAD-Modell konsequent durch verschiedene Prozessketten in mehreren Vorlesungen und Übungen während der gesamten Ingenieurstudie eingesetzt. Die frühe Integration dieses 3D-CAD-Modells im zweiten Semester legt eine Grundlage für seine Anwendung in weiteren Vorlesungen, Kursen, Projekten und Dissertationen. Aufgrund der Tatsache, dass dieses 3D-CAD-Modell einen Rennwagen einer Hochschulgruppe verkörpert, können die Studierenden ihr Wissen in der Universitätsgruppe "TU Darmstadt Racing Team e.V." vertiefen. Daher werden Synergien zwischen privaten und studentischen Aktivitäten gefördert. Neben der virtuellen Implementierung und Validierung können Konzepte den realen Prototypen zur Implementierung und Validierung verwenden. Die Eignung des 3D-CAD-Modells für die CAD-Ausbildung in Ingenieurstudien, insbesondere die Modellierung und Montage von Teilen und Baugruppen, wird durch die Übung des Kurses "rechnergestütztes Konstruieren" validiert. Die gestalterische Ausbildung von Studierenden mit Maschinenbau-orientierten Studienrichtungen wird in dem 2. Semester des Maschinenbaustudiums an der TU Darmstadt seit 1995 als Pflichtveranstaltung und ausschließlich mit modernen 3D-CAD-Systemen gelehrt. Die MBS-Prozesskette wird von mehreren Projekten und Thesen mit der McNeil Swendler Corp. (MSC) Software Automated Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems (ADAMS) Car validiert. Studierende führen eine MBS mit dem 3D-CAD-Modell aus. Neben Fahrmanövern werden auch Stempeltests simuliert. Dabei wird die gesamte MBS-Prozesskette durchlaufen. Das 3D-CAD-Modell dient als Grundlage für Baugruppenstrukturen, Bauteile und Darstellung kinematischer Ketten.German
