The branch of science that deals with motion, time, deformation, and forces Forces: check things on how hard to push something to make it move or whether it will break when we push. Deformation and motion: check things to move or not move in certain ways. Three major parts of mechanics The mechanical behavior of objects and materials (constitutive laws) The geometry of motion and distortion (kinematics) kinetics) Strength of materials expands statics to include material properties and also pays more attention to distributed forces (traction and stress). Strength of materials gives equal emphasis to all three parts of mechanics. Kinematics concerns geometry with no mention of force while kinetics concerns the relation of force to motion. The distinct between kinematics and kinetics is that kinetics is concerned with how forces interact with the motions of the system. Kinematics of Machinery: a study of motion of the components and basic geometry of the mechanism and is not concerned with the forces which cause or affect motion. This study includes the determination of velocity and acceleration of the machine members; the techniques of mechanism synthesis. Dynamics of Machinery: analyses the forces and couples on the members of the machine due to external forces (static force analysis), and also analyses the forces and couples due to accelerations of machine elements (dynamic force analysis). A rigid body means that the body resists deformation so strongly that no deformation is allowed and thus the distance between any two points that are attached to that body remains constant, regardless of how the body is moved. Similarly, the angle between any two intersecting lines that are attached to a rigid body remains constant regardless of the motion of that body. System analysis: the investigation, under specified conditions, of the performance of a system whose mathematical model is known Analysis steps Derive a mathematical model for each component in dynamic systems Combine all the models to build a model of the complete system Formulate the analysis results. System design refers to the process of finding a system that accomplishes a given task. The design process is not straightforward and will require trial and error. By synthesis, we mean the use of an explicit procedure to find a system that will perform in a specified way. The desired system characteristics are postulated at the outset, and then various mathematical techniques are used to synthesize a system having those characteristics. Trial-and-error techniques are almost always needed, because the features of the components may not be precisely known in practice.
