ME304: KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS OF MACHINES CONTINUAL ASSESSMENT 2(CA2): GROUPS G1,G3,G5,G7and G9 to SUBMIT THE SOLUTIONS PROBLEMS 1 and 3 TO EARN CREDIT. GROUPS G2,G4,G6 and G8 to SUBMIT THE SOLUTIONS PROBLEMS 2 and 4 TO EARN CREDIT SUBMISSION IS MANDATORY BY 21 JAN 2011 IN CLASS (Class Rep to collect) 1. Figure 1 shows the desired transition of an object from position 1 to position 3 via position 2 and the orientation of this object at these positions can be identified by looking at the orientation of a strip AB drawn on the side of the object at the three positions.

Figure 1 Using the techniques you have learnt for the graphical synthesis of mechanical linkages and based on the geometrical configuration and dimensions indicated in Figure 1. (a) Design a fourbar linkage to move the object from position 1 to 2 using points A and B as attachment points. Add a driver dyad to limit its motion to the range of positions designed making it a sixbar. All fixed pivots should be on the base. (b) Repeat part(a) for moving the object from position 2 to position 3 using points A and B for attachment. Add a driver dyad to limit its motion to the range of positions designed making it a sixbar. All fixed pivots should be on the base (c) Design a fourbar linkage to move the object through all the three positions 1,2 and 3 using points A and B as attachment points. Add a driver dyad to limit its motion to the range of positions designed making it a sixbar. All fixed pivots should be on the base. 2. Figure 2 shows the desired transition of machine link from position 1 to position 3 via position 2 and the orientation of this link at these positions can be identified by looking at the orientation of a strip CD drawn on the side of the object at the three positions. All dimensions shown are in mm.

and (f) the three geared fivebar cognates of this linkage and explore the FIVEBAR program to animate the cognates.16 of the textbook and shown in lecture slides. C1C1 and C3D3.e. Design a fourbar linkage that will give a symmetrical “kidney bean” shaped coupler curve as shown in Figure 3. 3. find (a) the Grashof condition. 2 . (c) limit positions . (d) extreme values of the transmission angle.ME304/MD/AY2010-2011 12 Jan 2011 Figure 2 Using the techniques you have learnt for the graphical synthesis of mechanical linkages and based on the geometrical configuration and dimensions indicated in Figure 2. (b) Design a fourbar mechanism to move this link through the three positions by using the fixed pivots O2 and O4 as shown.21 of the textbook and also shown in lecture slides to determine the link ratios required to design the link. Use the coupler curve characteristics shown in Figure 3. For the linkage shown in Figure 3. Figure 3 Note: Please do the work independently and do not copy from your friends. (a) Design a fourbar mechanism to move this link through the three positions by ignoring the fixed pivots O2 and O4 as shown. (e) the cognates of this linkage after drawing the Roberts diagram. For both cases design a dyad to restrict the motion of the link between the extreme positions of the link i. 4. (b) inversions. Then use the FOURBAR program to design and animate the linkage.
