Chapter 15

Modeling II

Publisher Summary

This chapter provides the opportunity to model some practical problems. An engineering mechanism used to generate a complex rotational motion from a simple one motion is examined. This chapter also solves a simple differential equation using the Runge-Kutta method.

This chapter will give us the opportunity to model some practical problems using what we have learned in the last three chapters.

Exercise 1: The Four-Bar Crank

In this Exercise we examine an engineering mechanism used to generate a complex rotational motion from a simple one motion.

The four-bar mechanism (see Figure 15.1) consists of three movable links (a, b, and c) and a fixed link d. The link a is rotated, causing link c to rotate. Our objective ...
