Abstract


Mechanical design course covers various contents, and most of them are complex theoretical knowledge. However, current teaching modes in China mainly combine textbook with PPT (PowerPoint) created in advance. This monotonous mode cause students to lose interests in their curriculum, and knowledge becomes difficult to gain. To improve teaching effectiveness, we propose a novel teaching mode by applying simulation technology to a particular mechanical design course. Using the chapter of gear transmission as an example, we also introduce a specific approach. Comparing traditional modes with the proposed mode, we demonstrate that combining simulation analysis technology with the content of mechanical design course can enrich the teaching process and improve students’ learning interests. The proposed approach can also help students analyze and solve problems with relevant knowledge and enhance their practical abilities. Thus, these students can satisfy the requirements of modern society for mechanical engineering graduates.
