The dynamic analysis of complex machines is often required to determine the machine’s motion and the forces that act during this motion. This is important for the purpose of strength analysis and determining the required driving forces, which could be used for design improvements or optimization.
In this course, a systematic procedure is presented to describe the machine kinematics and machine dynamics. To this end, kinematic constraints are formulated in terms of a carefully selected set of coordinates. Then, the system’s equation of motion is derived, taking these kinematic constraints into account.
It is explained in which specific situations hand calculations can still be used to establish relations between the velocities and accelerations of several machine components. It will also be explained what numerical techniques can be used to analyze the machine dynamics of the most general multibody systems.
At the end of this course you are able to:
This course is intended for engineers in the field of machine design and analysis. In particular it is relevant for engineers that have plenty of experience in static analysis and/or finite element analysis that want to have a solid introduction or recapitulation of the field of machine dynamics.
People with more experience in machine dynamics / structural dynamics / experimental dynamics are referred to the course Flexible Multibody Dynamics, which is tailored to their increased level of knowledge.
