Unformatted text preview: 162A. Introduction to Mechanisms and Mechanical Systems Chapter 1: Introduction CV s Instructor: Sanjeev Jain, PhD, MBA, LEED GA s Instructor Experience: s PhD UCLA 1991 (CAD/CAM, manufacturing) s Taught Design Courses UCLA 1991-92, 2005-present s 6+ years with United Technologies Research Center s Nearly 4 years with i2 Technologies s 3 years with Siemens s 3.5 years with LRN in Westwood s Now with a enterprise software company Where does this course fit in Mechanics Fluid Mechanics Solid Mechanics Statics Dynamics Kinematics Kinetics 1. Mechanics deals with motion, time and force 2. Statics means no motion, no changes with time 3. Dynamics implies changes with time 4. Kinematics (from Greek word Kinema or from Greek , kinein, to move ) deals with motion: displacement, velocity, acceleration, but no force 5. Kinetics includes force considerations Definitions s Analysis- analysis is determining motion of a given/ designed mechanism with known geometry ynthesis etermining linkage geometry to s Synthesis- determining linkage geometry to perform a specified task or execute a certain motion s In this class, we learn to analyze first and from that understanding learn to synthesize a system More definitions....
