Design and kinematic analysis of linkages. Course topics include linkage synthesis and motion analysis (position, velocity and acceleration) and technical writing. These topics are integrated in a semester-long design-build-test project utilizing commercial CAD and simulation software. This project involves project management, teamwork, design, creation of shop-quality drawings, manufacturing and assembly as well as performance testing of a three-position double-dwell linkage. Schedules (Gantt charts), progress reports and final reports are submitted.
