This course introduces the principles of designing mechanisms, aided by the use of computer applications. Students will investigate the kinematics and dynamics of machinery. Topics include fundamentals of linkage kinematics and design, gear kinematic analysis, and integrating common mechanisms for a machinery group project.
On successful completion of this course, student should be able to:
LO1. Describe the concept and the process of designing a mechanism system (CTPS).
LO2. Analyze the motion characteristics of the machine analytically, graphically or computationally (CTPS).
LO3. Synthesize mechanisms according to motion requirement (CTPS)
