Application of Mechanics in Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the application of the principles of physics for the design, maintenance, analysis, and manufacturing of mechanical systems. A mechanical engineer make use of mathematical and science principles for technical problem solving. This branch of engineering includes many sub divisions that are related to kinematics, mechanics, and energy of physical objects.

Significance of Mechanics in Mechanical Engineering

The Mechanical Engineering is considered to be one of the oldest and the widest applied engineering disciplines of the world. It is primarily involved with the generation of mechanical and heat power for designing, manufacturing and operating machines and different tools. The branch of engineering hugely depends on understanding the fundamental concepts of mechanical sciences or simply mechanics.

Mechanics is defined as a specialized branch of science that deals with the study of forces and their effect on matter. Engineering mechanics is utilized to analyze and envisage the acceleration and morphing of objects when they are under the application of the known forces or stresses. Mechanics is a very broad discipline and can be subdivided into a number of disciplines including statics, kinetics, fluid mechanics, continuum mechanics and mechanics of materials.

The mechanical engineers employ the concepts and principles of mechanics mainly in the analysis or design phases of engineering. The application of mechanics in mechanical engineering is very huge. It is applicable in the field of manufacturing plants, motorized vehicles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, robotics, medical devices, industrial equipment and machinery and more. A particular example of manufacturing of a car can be taken into consideration to study the application of mechanics in little detail. The design of frames of vehicle can be done using statics’ concepts in order to ascertain the areas of intense stresses. The design of the vehicle engine could be conducted with the help of kinetics to ascertain several forces. The mechanics of materials are highly beneficial in selection of the appropriate material for designing the car. Fluid mechanics can be used for designing the ventilation system.

Thus, it is not possible to design and manufacture any mechanical engineering tool or application without applying the core concepts of mechanics.
