ME 520 Advanced Fluid Mechanics (3)
Analysis and computation of steady flows in both internal and external geometries. Comparisons between experimental measurements and analytic solutions. Laminar and turbulent flows including boundary layers, duct flow, flow separation, and compressible flow. Prerequisite: ME 320.
ME 571 Principles of Mobile Robotics (3)
Principles and approaches of mobile robotics are taught. The emphasis is placed on robot mobility which allows a mobile robot to move through an environment to perform its tasks, covering the aspects of locomotion, sensing, localization and motion planning. Also covered are computer modeling and programming of mobile robots. Prerequisites: Physics I and Calculus III, or approved by instructor.
ME 572 Principles of Robot Manipulators (3)
Principles of robot manipulators are taught, including the kinematics, dynamics, trajectory generation and control. Also covered are computer modeling and analysis of robot manipulators, and programming of robot manipulators. Prerequisites: Physics I and Calculus III, or approved by instructor.
