Design, Synthesis and Analysis

Mechanism Design Philosophy: Stages of design, the synthesis process, Design categories and mechanism parameters.

Introduction to Kinematics and Mechanisms: Motion, The four bar Linkage, The science of Relative motion, Kinematic diagrams, six-bar chains, Degrees of freedom, Analysis vs. Synthesis. Mechanism analysis: Displacement and velocity analysis, acceleration analysis.

Kinematic Synthesis of Mechanisms: Number synthesis-The associated linkage concept. Graphical methods, tools and computer programming for synthesis of mechanisms for two, three and four prescribed positions, path generation, prescribed and un-prescribed timings. Analytical Synthesis Techniques. Function and motion generation. Number of prescribed positions vs. Number of Free Choices.

Dynamics of Mechanisms: Inertia forces, Kinetostatic Analysis by complex numbers, Superposition method, Matrix Method. Time response, modification of time response of mechanisms. Virtual work. Lagrange Equations of motion. Free vibration of systems with one degree of freedom. Forced vibrations of systems. Rotor balancing. Introduction to Force and Moment balancing of Linkages and its computer programming. Elastic beam element in Plane Motion.

Spatial Mechanisms: Transformations for spatial mechanisms, Analysis of spatial mechanisms. Link and Joint Modeling with Elementary Matrices. Kinematic analysis of an Industrial Robot, position, velocity and acceleration analysis.
