Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In this course, the students will learn fundamentals of geometric/kinematic/physical principles of mechanisms of machines composed of many components. Main focus of this course will be on:
1) Movements of the mechanisms (displacement, velocity, acceleration, static equilibrium of forces)
2) Linkages and cam mechanisms
3) Gears and gear systems, and
4) Robot mechanisms 
Class Schedule Lesson 1: Fundamentals of Mechanisms (Pairs and their DOFs)
Lesson 2: Fundamentals of Mechanisms (Chains and their DOFs)
Lesson 3: Instantaneous Center
Lesson 4: Displacement of Mechanisms
Lesson 5: Velocity of Mechanisms
Lesson 6: Velocity and Acceleration of Mechanisms [1]
Lesson 7: Velocity and Acceleration of Mechanisms [2]
Lesson 8: Mid-Term Examination
Lesson 9: Statics [1]
Lesson 10: Statics [2] and Linkages [1]
Lesson 11: Linkages [2] and Cam Mechanisms [1]
Lesson 12: Cam Mechanisms [2] and Rolling Wheels
Lesson 13: Gears
Lesson 14: Gear and Belt-driven Systems
Lesson 15: Motion of Robot Mechanisms

Mid-term and end-term examinations will be held. Report assignments will also be given.
