Course abstract

Students get acquainted with the fundamental conceptions according to international standards and terminology, with the quality theoretical characteristic, with the quality of surface. They obtain knowledge about the united structural conception of fits and tolerances system, principal terms of mating machine members, calculation and selection of fits. Students acquire the tolerances for bearing, for angular and conical dimensions, the tolerances and fits for machine parts mated gears, worm - gears, keys, slots etc.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

Knowledge’s: about the importance of interchangeability in mechanical engineering, its basic concepts and definitions according to international standards. - Test 1: on the unified system of tolerances and seats and their application in mechanical engineering - Test 2.
Skills: to use the acquired knowledge in the design of assembly and detail drawings - practical work.
Competence: to use the acquired knowledge and skills in creativity, design and production in any field of mechanical engineering - homework.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

The assessment of the study course examination depends on the assessment of the examination task and the cumulative assessment of the study course tests and homework.
The student can successfully pass the test or examination test if at least 50% of the test questions are answered correctly.
The homework and examination practical tasks are evaluated according to the assessment procedure set in the homework or examination practical tasks.
Students who have at least 7 marks in this study course may fail the theoretical test and equate the arithmetic mean of the test scores in the course with the assessment of the theoretical test.
The exam grade is calculated as the arithmetic mean of two exam tasks and the average grade of the semester, which is calculated as the arithmetic mean of the grade tests and homework.
