Application of Computer Graphics in Engine Design 810950

This paper is concerned with the approaches used in the selection and application of a computer graphics system called CADAM in the design and process of diesel engine components. Hardware, operation and features of this graphic system are discussed as well as the advantages and limitations over the traditional manual drawing techniques. Actual applications of CADAM to layout and detail drawings of engine components are illustrated and described in addition to management approaches to training, scheduling and drawing security. A brief assessment of future plans for computer graphics is also discussed.
