ME 460 - Kinematics and Linkage Design (3)
Catalog Data: Synthesis of linkage-type mechanisms, using graphical and computer methods.
Prerequisites: Senior standing in engineering or permission of instructor.
Instructor: Mark Ganter (ganter@uw <dot> edu)
Textbook (required): Mechanism Design: Analysis and Synthesis, Volume 1[Hardcover]
Arthur G. Erdman & George N. Sandor, 2 Har/Dis edition (October 1990)
Goals: To introduce mechanical engineering
students to the concepts of kinematics,
kinematic analysis (including position, velocity and acceleration), and linkage design (for
two and three position motion, path and function generation). This is to include graphical
(possibly via CAD), complex algebra and computer techniques.
