Basics of Tolerance Stack-up Analysis and Fits with GD&T
What you'll learn
- The Basics of Limits and Fits
- How to do a simple Tolerance stackup analysis
- How to do a Tolerance stackup analysis with GD&T
- What is statistical tolerancing
- How to Perform 1 D Tolerance stack up analysis
- Basic understanding of engineering design
- One section requires understanding of Basics of GD&T - Concepts like Virtual condition , boudnaries, Material modifiers, Datum Shift
Understanding Tolerances and tolerancing schemes is a very important part of Mechanical design .
In most cases Tolerances are directly detrimental to the functional performance of a mechanical product.
This course attempts to cover the key concepts in tolerance stackup , limits, fits and statistical tolerancing with examples .
Tolerance stackup analyses are critical in applications where small changes in dimension of parts can have heavy consequences.
What we will cover in the course?
What is tolerance? What are sources of variation ?
What are Fits , the nomenclature, types and Tolerance zones
How to decode and interpret a Fit specification and convert it into limits
How to Define a specification of a Fit for a specific application
How to do a simple tolerance stackup ? Generic procedure and factors to be considered?
How to develop Loop Diagrams in Stackup ?
Assembly shift in Tolerance analysis
How is assembly shift calculated
Stackup with GD&T
How to find Boundary conditions accounting for size and positional variations
How to derive the individual specifications in tolerance table
How to develop the envelopes for GD&T controls
Why Statistical techniques are used?
What is normal distribution
What is difference between worst case and statistical analysis
What is Process capability index
The course is structured to provide learning in a methodical step by step way with clear explanations .
Core Learning outcome is to provide a strong foundation concept in Tolerance analyses for mechanical Engineers in design and manufacturing.
Who this course is for:
- Graduate students in Engineering
- Working Design professionals in Engineering industry
