MACHINE DYNAMICS CASE STUDY
Aim: To conduct a full kinematic analysis and calculate the dynamic reaction forces in a linkage
mechanism, and to present the results of the case study in a clear reporting format.
Introduction:
The above figure depicts a frictionless slider linkage mechanism, consisting of 2 homogenous rigid rods, OA and AB . At the instant shown, rocker OA is subjected to torque T and has constant clockwise angular velocity OA ??. The rods have masses OA m and AB m, and the slider has mass B m . The weight of all rigid bodies can be ignored in all calculations.
To design the mechanism, a careful kinematic analysis of the mechanism needs to be conducted. Moreover, the reaction forces acting within the joints need to be analysed to avoid mechanical failure.
At the instant shown in the figure, perform the following tasks using the individually assigned values of lengths OA, AB , h , angle 1 ??, angular velocity OA ??, and masses OA m , AB m , B m – these can be found in
OA (m) AB (m) h (m) ?1 (deg) ?OA (rad/s) mOA (kg) mAB (kg) mB (kg)
0.45 0.32 0.48 37 10 0.3 1.1 0.8
All calculations should be included in the report. Please use the notation defined in the above figure when reporting the results from your calculations.
A. Geometric Calculations:
Determine:
(1) Horizontal displacement z .
(2) Angle ?2.
B. Velocity Analysis:
Determine the magnitude and direction of:
(1) Velocity of point A .
(2) Angular velocity for rod AB .
(3) Velocity of point B .
[20]
C. Acceleration Analysis:
Determine the magnitude and direction of:
(1) Acceleration of point A .
(2) Angular acceleration for rod AB .
(3) Acceleration of slider B .
(4) Acceleration of mass centre for OA.
(5) Acceleration of mass centre for AB
[30]
D. Dynamic Analysis:
(1) Sketch a clear free-body diagram for each rod and the slider, taking care to show all forces
(including pin reaction forces) and accelerations for all mass centres.
(2) Using D’Alemberts Principle (or otherwise), calculate the instantaneous torque T required
to drive the mechanism at the instant shown.

An additional 10 marks are available for well written reports. These marks will be awarded to students
who submit a concise report, containing the requested information with a clear presentation of numerical
results and diagrams. Lengthy reports that contain large amounts of repetition, trivial results and/or poor diagrams are unlikely to attract any of these marks.

# Our Service Charter

1. ### Excellent Quality / 100% Plagiarism-Free

We employ a number of measures to ensure top quality essays. The papers go through a system of quality control prior to delivery. We run plagiarism checks on each paper to ensure that they will be 100% plagiarism-free. So, only clean copies hit customers’ emails. We also never resell the papers completed by our writers. So, once it is checked using a plagiarism checker, the paper will be unique. Speaking of the academic writing standards, we will stick to the assignment brief given by the customer and assign the perfect writer. By saying “the perfect writer” we mean the one having an academic degree in the customer’s study field and positive feedback from other customers.
2. ### Free Revisions

We keep the quality bar of all papers high. But in case you need some extra brilliance to the paper, here’s what to do. First of all, you can choose a top writer. It means that we will assign an expert with a degree in your subject. And secondly, you can rely on our editing services. Our editors will revise your papers, checking whether or not they comply with high standards of academic writing. In addition, editing entails adjusting content if it’s off the topic, adding more sources, refining the language style, and making sure the referencing style is followed.
3. ### Confidentiality / 100% No Disclosure

We make sure that clients’ personal data remains confidential and is not exploited for any purposes beyond those related to our services. We only ask you to provide us with the information that is required to produce the paper according to your writing needs. Please note that the payment info is protected as well. Feel free to refer to the support team for more information about our payment methods. The fact that you used our service is kept secret due to the advanced security standards. So, you can be sure that no one will find out that you got a paper from our writing service.
4. ### Money Back Guarantee

If the writer doesn’t address all the questions on your assignment brief or the delivered paper appears to be off the topic, you can ask for a refund. Or, if it is applicable, you can opt in for free revision within 14-30 days, depending on your paper’s length. The revision or refund request should be sent within 14 days after delivery. The customer gets 100% money-back in case they haven't downloaded the paper. All approved refunds will be returned to the customer’s credit card or Bonus Balance in a form of store credit. Take a note that we will send an extra compensation if the customers goes with a store credit.

We have a support team working 24/7 ready to give your issue concerning the order their immediate attention. If you have any questions about the ordering process, communication with the writer, payment options, feel free to join live chat. Be sure to get a fast response. They can also give you the exact price quote, taking into account the timing, desired academic level of the paper, and the number of pages.
