Teaching objectives

Deal mechanisms :
Determination of the ideal configuration and the corresponding transmitted forces and couples.
Real mechanisms :
Effect of friction on the operation of mechanisms ; study of kinematic constraints, reversibility, efficiency.
Experiments are carried out on a range of standard links, and displacement transducers mounted on the supporting plate, permit measurements of displacements and transmitted forces and couples.
The innovative EX200 unit is designed for an in-depth experimental three-dimensional study of mechanisms.
A range of standard links is supplied. These are mounted on a plate equipped with six strain gauge displacement transducers which measure the applied loads. Comprehensive software for a compatible PC micro computer is supplied for data acquisition and display of forces and couples and plate displacements.
Signals are processed using the El616 Strain Bridge and the acquisition board.
