MET 210 KINEMATICS

MET 210 – Kinematics

Course Outline

Course Number & Name:  MET 210 Kinematics

Credit Hours:  3.0             Contact Hours:   4.5         Lecture:  3.0       Lab:  1.5                Other:  N/A

Prerequisites:  Grade of “C” or better in ENR 110

Co-requisites:  MTH 114                                               Concurrent Courses: None

Course Description: Students learn about moving elements used in the design and analysis of basic mechanisms in machines.  Topics covered in the course include velocity and acceleration analysis on a plane, design and analysis of four-bar linkages, and cams, gears, and other mechanisms using graphical and analytical methods.  Laboratory work is included.

Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:

  1. describe elements of various linkages and mechanisms associated with the design of machines;
  2. build computer models of mechanisms using AutoCAD and Working Model software;
  3. perform vector analysis;
  4. perform position, displacement, velocity, and acceleration analysis;
  5. demonstrate knowledge and apply concepts of mechanism design;
  6. perform design and kinematic analysis of cams; and
  7. demonstrate knowledge and apply concepts of kinematic analysis and selection of gears.
