Smitty describes more about suspension design.
Smitty describes the importance of shock absorbers in suspension design.
Smitty describes the principles of suspension design.
Smitty describes the design principles for the chassis of a race car.
Smitty shows how the geometry and material work together to provide strength and stiffness.
Smitty presents the basic techniques of soldering. Every mechanical system includes electronic parts and careful soldering is critical to ensuring things do not come loose in operation.
This video describes the hand tools important to project engineering. It also has a nicely produced introduction by UCI’s Learning Center.
This is the second of a series of videos on fabrication techniques for project engineering. This video focusses on a continuous bead where speed control is critical.
In this video, Smitty presents the basic techniques for determining the center of gravity of a racecar. The location of a vehicle’s center of gravity relative to the contact patches of its tires defines the limits of its performance.
This is the first of a series of videos that provide basic fabrication training for project engineering. This video presents the basic techniques of MIG welding.
