CAD 2 - Motion Analysis of Mechanisms

Course aims

In this course, students will be introduced to methods of calculating kinematic quantities for solving direct and inverse problems of kinematics, dynamic quantities - reactions and loading forces for the purpose of dimensioning mechanisms in motion, modeling and simulation of motion of mechanisms and determining collisions of mechanism components.
