The student will type numerical values for machine design parameters and Excel will perform the calculations. For example, the proposed dimensions and friction coefficient of a brake are typed into labeled cells and the brake shoe torque capacity will be calculated by software internal to Excel.
Or any input parameter can be found for a target value of an Excel calculated item by using the “Goal Seek” tool in Excel.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
