Kinematic Pair (Definition)

Definition: The two links or elements of a machine, when in contact with each other are said to form a pair. If the relative motion between them is completely or successfully constrained (i.e. in a definite direction) the pair is known as kinematic pair. source: Thermodynamics by Youns A.

Classifications of Machine Design

The machine design may be classified as follows : 1. Adaptive design. In most cases, the designer’s work is concerned with adaptation of existing designs. This type of design needs no special knowledge or skill and can be attempted by designers of ordinary technical training. The designer only makes minor alternation or modification in the existing designs of the product. ... Read More »

General Considerations in Machine Design

General Considerations in Machine Design

General Considerations in Machine Design Following are the general considerations in designing a machine component: 1. Type of load and stresses caused by the load. The load, on a machine component, may act in several ways due to which the internal stresses are set up. 2. Motion of the parts or kinematics of the machine. The successful operation of any ...

Electromechanical systems

Electromechanical systems In the design of any complex system, all the relevant design details must be considered to ensure the development of a successful product. In the development of motion systems, problems in the design process are most likely to occur in the actuator or motor-drive system. When designing any actuation system, mechanical designers work with electrical and electronic systems ... Read More »

Machine Tools

Machine Tools

Despite advances in technology, the basic stages in manufacturing have not changed over the centuries: material has to be moved, machined, and processed. When considering current advanced manufacturing facilities it should be remembered that they are but the latest step in a continuing process that started during the Industrial Revolution in the second half of the eighteenth century. The machine ... Read More »

Manufacturing Engineering

Manufacturing Engineering

Manufacturing is derived from the Latin word manufactus, means made by hand. In modern context it involves making products from raw material by using various processes, by making use of hand tools, machinery or even computers. It is therefore a study of the processes required to make parts and to assemble them in machines. Process Engineering, in its application to ... Read More »
