1
00:00:18,039 --> 00:00:25,039
In an earlier lecture, we have already mentioned
that there are two types of problems in kinematics
2
00:00:25,550 --> 00:00:32,550
namely, kinematic analysis and kinematic synthesis.
In kinematic analysis, we determine the relative
3
00:00:36,970 --> 00:00:43,970
motion characteristics of a given mechanism.
From today's lecture, we shall start the discussion
4
00:00:44,350 --> 00:00:50,049
on this topic of kinematic analysis.
5
00:00:50,049 --> 00:00:57,049
Broadly, we can classify the kinematic analysis
problems into three headings namely, displacement
6
00:01:00,640 --> 00:01:07,640
analysis, velocity analysis and acceleration
analysis. For all these three types of problems,
7
00:01:10,890 --> 00:01:17,890
that is displacement analysis, velocity analysis
and acceleration analysis, we can use either
8
00:01:18,170 --> 00:01:25,170
a graphical method or an analytical method.
In today's lecture, we shall discuss only
9
00:01:28,570 --> 00:01:34,030
the graphical method and that too only of
displacement analysis. Later on, we shall
10
00:01:34,030 --> 00:01:41,030
take up velocity analysis and acceleration
analysis. Let us see, what do you mean by
11
00:01:42,320 --> 00:01:47,229
a displacement analysis of a mechanism?
12
00:01:47,229 --> 00:01:53,390
If we have given the kinematic dimensions
and the position or the movement of the input
13
00:01:53,390 --> 00:01:59,560
link, then we should be able to determine
the position or movement of all other links
14
00:01:59,560 --> 00:02:06,560
by this displacement analysis. In the graphical
method, first we draw the kinematic diagram
15
00:02:07,479 --> 00:02:14,069
of the mechanism to a suitable scale and then
the desired unknown quantities are determined
16
00:02:14,069 --> 00:02:19,950
through suitable geometrical constructions
and calculations. We shall demonstrate this
17
00:02:19,950 --> 00:02:26,719
graphical method through a series of examples.
However, before going into the details of
18
00:02:26,719 --> 00:02:33,719
each and every example, let me list the main
points that one should remember while using
19
00:02:34,249 --> 00:02:37,819
graphical method of displacement analysis.
20
00:02:37,819 --> 00:02:44,819
So, the main points are: First of all, we
must remember that the configuration of a
21
00:02:44,870 --> 00:02:51,870
rigid body in plane motion is completely defined
by the location of any two points on it. That
22
00:02:52,459 --> 00:02:57,909
means, if we know the location of any two
arbitrary points of a rigid body in plane
23
00:02:57,909 --> 00:03:02,870
motion, then we know the location of all other
points on that rigid body.
24
00:03:02,870 --> 00:03:09,260
The second point is as we will see when we
solve the examples that very often, we will
25
00:03:09,260 --> 00:03:16,260
need to draw two circles which are intersecting
or a line and a circle which are intersecting.
26
00:03:16,579 --> 00:03:23,469
We know that such intersection points can
be two that means two intersecting circles,
27
00:03:23,469 --> 00:03:30,309
in general intersect at two points. Similarly,
a line and a circle also intersect generally
28
00:03:30,309 --> 00:03:37,180
at two points. However, sometimes it may be
necessary to choose the correct point of intersection
29
00:03:37,180 --> 00:03:43,029
for the problem in hand. As I said, all these
points will be shown very clearly when we
30
00:03:43,029 --> 00:03:48,029
solve those particular examples.
31
00:03:48,029 --> 00:03:54,489
The third problem is sometimes we may use
a tracing paper as an overlay and we will
32
00:03:54,489 --> 00:04:00,189
see that this will very convenient, especially
if there are higher order links present in
33
00:04:00,189 --> 00:04:07,189
any particular mechanism and lastly, we must
know that the graphical method of displacement
34
00:04:07,760 --> 00:04:14,760
analysis cannot be used unless there are adequate
number of four-links closed loops in the particular
35
00:04:17,139 --> 00:04:21,709
mechanism. Unless, we have adequate number
of four-links closed loops, the graphical
36
00:04:21,709 --> 00:04:28,639
method of displacement analysis cannot proceed.
So, let me start with the first example, which
37
00:04:28,639 --> 00:04:34,800
is a slotted lever quick return mechanism
which is used in shipping machines. First,
38
00:04:34,800 --> 00:04:41,320
I will show the model, then the kinematic
diagram of the same mechanism and then post
39
00:04:41,320 --> 00:04:43,910
the question of displacement analysis.
40
00:04:43,910 --> 00:04:50,910
This is the model of the quick return mechanism
that is used in shipping machine. This is
41
00:04:53,480 --> 00:05:00,480
the cutting tool. This tool holder moves in
a slot in the frame of the machine. This is
42
00:05:01,320 --> 00:05:08,090
called the bull gear, which is rotated at
a constant speed. Here is a block, which is
43
00:05:08,090 --> 00:05:15,090
hinged to the bull gear and this block moves
up and down in this slotted lever, the slotted
44
00:05:15,150 --> 00:05:21,430
lever is hinged to the frame at this point
and the slotted lever is connected to the
45
00:05:21,430 --> 00:05:28,430
tool holder by an additional link. So, we
have a six-link mechanism where the continuous
46
00:05:29,530 --> 00:05:35,510
uniform rotation of the bull gear is converted
into the to and fro motion of the cutting
47
00:05:35,510 --> 00:05:42,510
tool. The cutting tool during the forward
motion is doing useful work and we have to
48
00:05:42,600 --> 00:05:48,210
maintain a proper cutting speed. However,
during the return stroke of the tool, this
49
00:05:48,210 --> 00:05:53,650
is not doing any useful work, so I would like
to make the return faster and that is why,
50
00:05:53,650 --> 00:05:59,900
it is called quick return mechanism. As we
see very clearly, if I rotate the bull gear
51
00:05:59,900 --> 00:06:06,030
at almost uniform speed, the forward motion
is slow but the return is faster.
52
00:06:06,030 --> 00:06:11,970
This is the kinematic diagram of the six-link
slotted lever mechanism, the model of which
53
00:06:11,970 --> 00:06:18,970
we have just seen. Here, this link O2A, that
is link number 2 represents the bull gear,
54
00:06:19,670 --> 00:06:25,500
link number 3 is the block which goes up and
down in the slotted lever, which is link number
55
00:06:25,500 --> 00:06:32,310
4, link number 5 connects the slotted lever
to the tool holder, which is represented by
56
00:06:32,310 --> 00:06:39,310
link 6. So, we have a six-link mechanism with
a revolute pair at O2, revolute pair at O4,
57
00:06:40,680 --> 00:06:47,680
revolute pair at A, revolute pair at B, revolute
pair at D and there are two prismatic pairs,
58
00:06:47,820 --> 00:06:54,820
one between 1 and 6 in this horizontal direction
and there is a prismatic pair between link
59
00:06:55,000 --> 00:07:02,000
3 and 4 along the slotted lever. The problem
is if link 2 rotates at a constant speed say,
60
00:07:02,680 --> 00:07:09,680
omega 2 then we have to find, what we call
Q.R.R- Quick Return Ratio.
61
00:07:11,420 --> 00:07:17,670
By Quick Return Ratio we mean the time that
the tool takes for the forward motion and
62
00:07:17,670 --> 00:07:23,240
ratio of the time taken for the forward motion
and the backward motion.
63
00:07:23,240 --> 00:07:29,830
If link 2 is rotating at a constant speed,
say omega 2, then the time it takes for the
64
00:07:29,830 --> 00:07:35,370
forward motion is thetaforward that is the
rotation of the link 2 during the forward
65
00:07:35,370 --> 00:07:42,370
motion and backward motion is say return,
thetar where thetar is the rotation of link
66
00:07:43,450 --> 00:07:48,760
2 during the return motion. So the problem
is during this mechanism, can we find the
67
00:07:48,760 --> 00:07:54,510
quick return ratio? Before I start solving
the problem, let me restate the problem for
68
00:07:54,510 --> 00:08:00,900
your benefit, which is what we are taking
as our example 1.
69
00:08:00,900 --> 00:08:07,550
Example 1 is determination of quick return
ratio of a slotted lever mechanism used in
70
00:08:07,550 --> 00:08:14,550
shapers. It is already been seen that the
quick return ratio which is defined as q.r.r
71
00:08:16,550 --> 00:08:23,550
is equal to thetaf divided by thetar, where
thetaf is the rotation of link 2 during the
72
00:08:25,050 --> 00:08:31,669
forward motion and thetar is the rotation
of same link 2, that is the bull gear during
73
00:08:31,669 --> 00:08:38,070
the return motion of the cutting tool. Of
course, we are assuming that the angular speed
74
00:08:38,070 --> 00:08:43,229
of link 2 remains constant.
75
00:08:43,229 --> 00:08:50,229
Let us now return to the kinematic diagram
of the same slotted lever quick return mechanism
76
00:08:50,649 --> 00:08:57,649
in which link 2, that is this line O2A represents
the bull gear of the input link and link 6,
77
00:08:59,829 --> 00:09:06,829
that is this block D represents the tool holder
of the cutting tool. As this bull gear rotates
78
00:09:07,559 --> 00:09:14,559
counterclockwise direction, this tool moves
from right to left and left to right. This
79
00:09:15,360 --> 00:09:21,170
motion from right to left is the cutting motion
and left to right is the return motion. Our
80
00:09:21,170 --> 00:09:27,809
objective is to determine the quick return
ratio of this particular mechanism and also
81
00:09:27,809 --> 00:09:32,759
to determine what the stroke length of the
tool is.
82
00:09:32,759 --> 00:09:39,759
To analyze the problem, let me first note
that this point A moves along this circle
83
00:09:40,920 --> 00:09:47,920
whose centre is at O2, the radius is O2A.
That is, this circle represents the path of
84
00:09:49,430 --> 00:09:56,430
the point A and I call it kA. To locate the
extreme positions of the slotted lever, that
85
00:10:00,920 --> 00:10:07,920
is this link 4, I draw two tangents from the
point O4 to this circle kA. This is the tangent
86
00:10:16,800 --> 00:10:23,800
to the right and similarly, this is the tangent
to the left. Consequently, the right most
87
00:10:31,410 --> 00:10:37,160
position of this slotted lever, that is link
4 is represented by this line and the left
88
00:10:37,160 --> 00:10:44,160
most extreme position of the same slotted
lever O4B is represented by this line. When
89
00:10:44,860 --> 00:10:51,610
the slotted lever along these two lines, the
point A this at this location let me call
90
00:10:51,610 --> 00:10:58,610
it AR and at this position, let me call AL.
Since the distance O4B does not change, I
91
00:11:02,949 --> 00:11:09,949
can also locate right most position of the
revolute pair at B by drawing this circular
92
00:11:12,329 --> 00:11:19,329
arc with O4 as centre and O4B as radius. So,
I gave this point which I call BR, denoting
93
00:11:22,699 --> 00:11:29,699
the right most position of B.
The same way on this line O4 AL, I locate
94
00:11:33,879 --> 00:11:40,879
the left most position of the revolute pair
BL. Now, let us notice that the point D is
95
00:11:41,589 --> 00:11:47,160
going along this horizontal straight line
and the distance BD does not change. So, when
96
00:11:47,160 --> 00:11:54,160
B occupies BR, let me locate where DR is.
To do that, I draw a circular arc with BR
97
00:11:59,110 --> 00:12:06,110
as centre and BD as radius intersects this
horizontal line. That is the line of the stroke
98
00:12:07,079 --> 00:12:14,079
of the cutting tool at this point which I
mark as DR. So DR indicates the extreme right
99
00:12:14,899 --> 00:12:21,899
most position of link 6.
The same way, I can look at DL on the same
100
00:12:22,319 --> 00:12:29,319
horizontal line. This is the line of movement
of D and D does not change, BL is here. So,
101
00:12:32,149 --> 00:12:39,149
I draw a circular arc with BL as centre and
BD as radius to locate the extreme position
102
00:12:39,980 --> 00:12:46,980
of the point D which I call DL. So this distance
DL, DR represents the stroke of the cutting
103
00:12:48,809 --> 00:12:54,869
tool according to the scale of the figure.
Now to find out the quick return ratio, we
104
00:12:54,869 --> 00:13:01,869
see that the link O2A rotates from O2AR to
O2AL during the forward movement. So, this
105
00:13:10,410 --> 00:13:17,410
is the angle through which link 2 is rotating
through its forward movement which I call
106
00:13:18,279 --> 00:13:24,309
thetaf.
Same way, during the return motion, the point
107
00:13:24,309 --> 00:13:31,309
A is going from AL to AR, that is link O2A
is going from O2AL to O2AR and rotating through
108
00:13:33,040 --> 00:13:40,040
an angle which I call thetar. So, we can easily
determine the quick return ratio, q.r.r as
109
00:13:55,990 --> 00:14:02,990
the ratio of the angle thetaf divided by thetar.
We have solved the problem. We have determined
110
00:14:07,749 --> 00:14:13,579
this given slotted lever quick return mechanism.
The quick return ratio is given by thetaf
111
00:14:13,579 --> 00:14:20,579
divided by thetar and the stroke of the tool
as DRDL for the particular given mechanism.
112
00:14:23,559 --> 00:14:29,910
We also note that if the stroke length DRDL
has to be decreased then I have to change
113
00:14:29,910 --> 00:14:36,819
the length O2A. As we decrease the length
O2A, the distance DRDL will change, that is
114
00:14:36,819 --> 00:14:43,819
the stroke length of the tool will be decreased.
However, as we decrease the radius O2A then
115
00:14:44,029 --> 00:14:51,029
this tangent from this O4 to this circle kA,
that is these points AR and AL move upward
116
00:14:51,540 --> 00:14:58,540
and the angle thetaf and thetar both tend
to value 180 degree. Consequently, q.r.r which
117
00:14:59,839 --> 00:15:06,329
is thetaf divided by thetar, when both of
them tend to the same value 180 degree, q.r.r
118
00:15:06,329 --> 00:15:12,350
reduces. That is, this mechanism is okay for
producing quick return effect as long the
119
00:15:12,350 --> 00:15:17,439
stroke of the tool is sufficiently large,
quick return effect continuously decreases
120
00:15:17,439 --> 00:15:24,439
as the stroke length of the tool decreases.
We have just now explained the slotted lever
121
00:15:25,089 --> 00:15:31,959
quick return mechanism used for shipping machines
is not good for smaller stroke length because
122
00:15:31,959 --> 00:15:38,959
the quick return ratio tends to become 1.
That is, the quick return ratio decreases
123
00:15:40,170 --> 00:15:42,279
with decreasing stroke length.
124
00:15:42,279 --> 00:15:47,899
However, for slotting machine where the stroke
lengths are normally short, we have to have
125
00:15:47,899 --> 00:15:52,899
different types of quick return mechanism
where the quick return ratio is the independent
126
00:15:52,899 --> 00:15:59,730
of the stroke length. Such a mechanism is
called Whitworth quick return mechanism. So
127
00:15:59,730 --> 00:16:05,199
we shall first see the model of such a Whitworth
quick return mechanism then, pose the same
128
00:16:05,199 --> 00:16:11,459
problem as example 2, determine the quick
return ratio of this Whitworth quick return
129
00:16:11,459 --> 00:16:18,459
mechanism and also see how it is independent
of the stroke length of the tool. Before showing
130
00:16:20,499 --> 00:16:27,499
the model and solving the problem, let me
restate the problem for your benefit.
131
00:16:27,579 --> 00:16:33,850
This is our example 2, that is determination
of quick return ratio of Whitworth quick return
132
00:16:33,850 --> 00:16:40,829
mechanism used in slotting machines. As I
said earlier, we will also show that in this
133
00:16:40,829 --> 00:16:46,829
mechanism the quick return ratio will be independent
of the stroke length.
134
00:16:46,829 --> 00:16:52,399
This is the model of Whitworth quick return
mechanism. Here, the cutting tool is this
135
00:16:52,399 --> 00:16:59,399
one which is moving in this horizontal slot.
So, if we rotate the input link at a constant
136
00:17:00,970 --> 00:17:07,970
speed, this is obvious that the forward and
return motion of the tool is taking at different
137
00:17:12,959 --> 00:17:19,020
time. It is going much faster in this direction
and coming back slower in this direction.
138
00:17:19,020 --> 00:17:24,360
So, if we consider this as the cutting tool,
which is cutting in that direction, then we
139
00:17:24,360 --> 00:17:30,870
should rotate it in the opposite direction.
It is cutting slowly and returning much faster.
140
00:17:30,870 --> 00:17:37,870
We shall see the kinematic diagram of this
Whitworth quick return mechanism and analyze
141
00:17:38,500 --> 00:17:40,090
its quick return ratio.
142
00:17:40,090 --> 00:17:46,800
This is the kinematic diagram of that Whitworth
quick return mechanism. As we see, this is
143
00:17:46,800 --> 00:17:53,800
also a six-link mechanism with five revolute
pairs and two prismatic pairs. This link 6
144
00:17:55,930 --> 00:18:02,930
is the tool holder and link 2 is the input
link which rotates at constant angular speed,
145
00:18:04,630 --> 00:18:11,630
link 3 is the block which goes along link
4 at this prismatic pair, link 4 is hinged
146
00:18:14,280 --> 00:18:21,280
to the fixed link at O4, link 2 is hinged
to the fixed link at O2, link 4 or 5 are connected
147
00:18:23,590 --> 00:18:30,590
by this revolute pair at C. Link 5 and 6 are
connected by this revolute pair and link 6
148
00:18:33,380 --> 00:18:40,380
has a prismatic pair with fixed link 1 along
this horizontal direction. For the given kinematic
149
00:18:41,240 --> 00:18:48,240
dimensions, our objective is to determine
the quick return ratio. If the link 2, that
150
00:18:48,700 --> 00:18:52,040
is input link rotates at constant angular
speed.
151
00:18:52,040 --> 00:18:59,040
First thing to note that the stroke of the
tool that is, this 6 is entirely decided by
152
00:18:59,670 --> 00:19:06,670
the length O4C. When D goes to the right most
position in this direction, C comes on this
153
00:19:08,580 --> 00:19:15,580
line, O4C and CD becomes collinear. Similarly,
for the left most position of this link 6,
154
00:19:18,120 --> 00:19:25,120
again O4C and CD becomes collinear but C comes
on this side on the line O4D and the stroke
155
00:19:30,130 --> 00:19:37,130
length of the tool is obviously equal to twice
of O4C because the maximum distance is O4C
156
00:19:37,820 --> 00:19:44,820
plus CD and the minimum distance is CD minus
O4C. So, the total movement of the tool is
157
00:19:45,320 --> 00:19:52,320
given by twice O4C, that is the stroke length
is changed by changing the length O4C, no
158
00:19:52,810 --> 00:19:59,680
change is made in the length O2A, whereas,
we shall see that the quick return ratio will
159
00:19:59,680 --> 00:20:06,030
be entirely decided by the link length O2A,
the position of O2 and the position of this
160
00:20:06,030 --> 00:20:07,460
horizontal line.
161
00:20:07,460 --> 00:20:12,300
This is the kinematic diagram of the same
Whitworth quick return mechanism which we
162
00:20:12,300 --> 00:20:19,300
have just seen. This link O2A is the input
link number 2 and this link 6 is the output
163
00:20:21,120 --> 00:20:27,980
link, that is the tool holder. Due to continuous
uniform rotation of this input link 2, this
164
00:20:27,980 --> 00:20:34,600
tool holder 6 oscillates along this horizontal
line.
165
00:20:34,600 --> 00:20:41,600
The point to note is this point A moves on
a circle with O2 as centre and O2A as the
166
00:20:42,730 --> 00:20:49,730
radius. This is the path of the point A, let
me call it kA. Again, we should note that
167
00:20:53,780 --> 00:21:00,780
the point A, O4 and C always lie on the same
straight line and O4 is never moving. So,
168
00:21:02,210 --> 00:21:09,210
when the point A comes here, that is the point
of intersection kA and the line of reciprocation
169
00:21:09,440 --> 00:21:16,440
of the tool, let me call this point of intersection
is A to the power L. Corresponding to this
170
00:21:18,950 --> 00:21:25,950
position of A, since A, O4 and C are always
on one line, C will also be on this horizontal
171
00:21:26,990 --> 00:21:33,990
line and at a distance O4C from O4, because
this is also a link length which is not changing.
172
00:21:35,980 --> 00:21:42,980
Corresponding position of C, as C moves on
this circle with O4 as centre and O4C as radius.
173
00:21:43,220 --> 00:21:50,220
So, I will call this point C to the power
L that is, the left most position of C. Correspondingly,
174
00:21:50,760 --> 00:21:57,760
D will move here such that C to the power
L, D to the power L is CD because this link
175
00:21:58,780 --> 00:22:03,740
length is also not changing. So, this is the
left most position of the tool holder. Let
176
00:22:03,740 --> 00:22:10,610
me call it D to the power L.
Exactly the same way, when the point A occupies
177
00:22:10,610 --> 00:22:16,970
this point, which is the intersection of kA
and the line of reciprocation of the tool
178
00:22:16,970 --> 00:22:23,970
through O4, let me call this point of intersection
as A to the power of R. Since C is moving
179
00:22:28,790 --> 00:22:35,790
on this circle and A, O4 and C must be on
line, if I draw this circle, that is the path
180
00:22:36,740 --> 00:22:43,550
of C, when it intersects this line of reciprocation,
I will call that the intersection as C to
181
00:22:43,550 --> 00:22:50,550
the power of R. Again, the distance CD is
unique. So, from C to the power of R, if I
182
00:22:51,650 --> 00:22:58,650
draw an arc with CD as the radius, I get the
right most position of D, which I call D to
183
00:22:59,090 --> 00:23:06,090
the power of R. Thus, this tool that is this
link 6 moves from D to the power L to D to
184
00:23:11,660 --> 00:23:17,470
the power R that is, the stroke length which
is exactly equal to two times O4C.
185
00:23:17,470 --> 00:23:22,030
However, during this movement from D to the
power L to D to the power of R, the point
186
00:23:22,030 --> 00:23:27,560
A goes from A to the power L to A to the power
of R, from D to the power of R to D to the
187
00:23:27,560 --> 00:23:32,510
power L, the point A goes from A to the power
of R to A to the power L. As we see the O2A,
188
00:23:32,510 --> 00:23:38,460
this link is rotating with constant input
speed. So from right to left, the rotation
189
00:23:38,460 --> 00:23:45,460
is this angle, which I call thetaf and from
left to right it rotates only through this
190
00:23:48,550 --> 00:23:55,550
angle which is 2 pi minus thetaf. That is,
during the return stroke thetar is 2 pi minus
191
00:23:58,840 --> 00:24:05,840
thetaf and the quick return ratio is thetaf
divided by thetar. As we see, the stroke length
192
00:24:16,250 --> 00:24:22,240
can be changed by changing the length O4C
which has no role to play so far as these
193
00:24:22,240 --> 00:24:27,240
two lines are concerned, that is O2A to the
power L and O2A to the power of R that is
194
00:24:27,240 --> 00:24:33,000
decided by the intersection of the circle
kA and the line of reciprocation of this point
195
00:24:33,000 --> 00:24:39,930
D. So, the quick return ratio remains same
even if we change the link length O4C which
196
00:24:39,930 --> 00:24:45,050
causes a change in the stroke length. So,
this is the quick return ratio of the Whitworth
197
00:24:45,050 --> 00:24:50,760
quick return mechanism which is independent
of the stroke length.
198
00:24:50,760 --> 00:24:57,760
As our next example, let us consider another
six-link mechanism which is shown in this
199
00:25:00,100 --> 00:25:07,100
figure. Here, as we see there is a four-bar
mechanism O2ABO4. Link 4 of this four-link
200
00:25:19,560 --> 00:25:26,560
mechanism, that is this link is connected
to another link 5 at this compound hinge B
201
00:25:26,820 --> 00:25:33,820
where 3 links are connected namely, 3, 4 and
5. Link 5 is connected to this slider which
202
00:25:37,060 --> 00:25:43,880
is link 6 and slider has a prismatic pair
with the fixed link such that the point D
203
00:25:43,880 --> 00:25:50,880
moves in the horizontal direction. The question
is if this link O2A, that is link number 2
204
00:25:54,930 --> 00:26:01,800
rotates completely, what is the stroke length
of the slider at D? The scale of the diagram
205
00:26:01,800 --> 00:26:08,020
has been shown here that this distance is
equal 5 cm.
206
00:26:08,020 --> 00:26:15,020
For this problem, first we have to see that
the four-link mechanism O2ABO4 happens to
207
00:26:16,150 --> 00:26:23,150
be a crank rocker because the maximum link
length O2A for which I may call l1 as lmax
208
00:26:25,080 --> 00:26:32,080
and l2 as lmin, lmax plus lmin is less than
l3plus l4, that is the other two link lengths.
209
00:26:34,810 --> 00:26:41,810
So, this is the Grashof linkage with O2A as
the shortest link. Consequently, this link
210
00:26:41,820 --> 00:26:48,730
O2A will rotate completely. We have to find
out what is the maximum right most position
211
00:26:48,730 --> 00:26:54,910
of this point D and what is the left most
position of this point D such that I can determine
212
00:26:54,910 --> 00:27:01,910
DL and DR which will give the stroke length
of the slider 6. Before we solve this problem,
213
00:27:08,180 --> 00:27:11,130
let me write out this problem for your benefit.
214
00:27:11,130 --> 00:27:18,130
This is our third example and example 3 is
the figure shows a six link mechanism. Determine
215
00:27:18,850 --> 00:27:25,570
the stroke-length of the output link, that
is the slider 6. Also, determine the quick
216
00:27:25,570 --> 00:27:31,250
return ratio assuming the constant angular
speed of link 2.
217
00:27:31,250 --> 00:27:38,250
Let us solve this example 3 and the kinematic
diagram of that mechanism is shown here again.
218
00:27:39,740 --> 00:27:45,410
The problem is first to find out the stroke
length of this link 6, that is the slider
219
00:27:45,410 --> 00:27:52,410
at D. To find the extreme right position of
the point D, first we have to find out what
220
00:27:52,410 --> 00:27:59,410
is the extreme right position of this point
B? Due to this length O4B that is link 4,
221
00:27:59,840 --> 00:28:06,840
B moves on a circle with O4 as centre and
O4B as radius. This circle represents the
222
00:28:11,500 --> 00:28:18,500
path of B. Let me call it kB. The extreme
right position of the point B will be taken
223
00:28:21,800 --> 00:28:28,800
up. As we have discussed earlier, when link
2, that is O2A and link 3, that is AB become
224
00:28:30,000 --> 00:28:37,000
collinear. So the extreme position of B let
me call it B to the power of R, when O2B to
225
00:28:39,620 --> 00:28:46,620
the power of R is equal to O2A plus AB. So,
I take O2A plus AB and from O2, I mark that
226
00:28:52,050 --> 00:28:59,050
distance at B arc.
Let me repeat. B moves on this circle and
227
00:29:00,120 --> 00:29:05,970
at the extreme position, O2A and AB become
collinear. So, O2B to the power of R becomes
228
00:29:05,970 --> 00:29:12,970
O2A plus AB. Similarly, for the extreme left
position, again link 2 and link 3 become collinear
229
00:29:14,950 --> 00:29:21,950
but O2A comes here. Let me call it A to the
power L. This A to the power L B to the power
230
00:29:26,370 --> 00:29:33,370
L is equal to AB and this point becomes B
to the power of L. That is, O2B to the power
231
00:29:35,970 --> 00:29:42,970
L becomes the difference of the link lengths
AB minus O2A. So, I take the difference of
232
00:29:42,990 --> 00:29:49,990
AB and O2A and take that from O2 and mark
it on kB. The link 4 oscillates from O2B to
233
00:29:58,620 --> 00:30:05,620
the power of R to O2B to the power L. So,
this is a crank rocker mechanism and this
234
00:30:06,000 --> 00:30:13,000
is the rocking movement of the link 4. BD
is of fixed length and B moves on this horizontal
235
00:30:14,610 --> 00:30:21,610
line. From this B to the power of R, if I
mark this is BD. From B to the power of R,
236
00:30:23,760 --> 00:30:30,760
I mark this circle and wherever it intersects
the horizontal line through D that determines
237
00:30:34,630 --> 00:30:39,800
the extreme position of D, I call it D to
the power of R.
238
00:30:39,800 --> 00:30:46,360
Similarly, from B to the power L, again taking
the same length BD, I draw a circular arc
239
00:30:46,360 --> 00:30:53,360
and wherever it intersects this horizontal
line through D that determines the extreme
240
00:30:53,900 --> 00:30:59,590
left position of D, that is D to the power
L. So, this distance D to the power of L D
241
00:30:59,590 --> 00:31:06,590
to the power of R determines the stroke length
of this slider 6. Now, to determine the quick
242
00:31:06,590 --> 00:31:12,270
return ratio that is the time taken from left
to right and right to left, I can find out
243
00:31:12,270 --> 00:31:19,270
assuming, of course that link 2 rotates at
uniform speed. For B to the power of R, the
244
00:31:20,200 --> 00:31:27,200
corresponding point of A and this is the circle
on which A moves with O2 as centre and O2A
245
00:31:32,510 --> 00:31:39,510
as radius which we call kA. For the
extreme right position A comes here, let me
call it A to the power of R and for the extreme
246
00:31:48,110 --> 00:31:54,330
left position, that is B to the power L, this
point which we have already mark as A to the
247
00:31:54,330 --> 00:32:01,330
power L. As the link rotates uniformly from
right to left, the rotation of O2A is given
248
00:32:02,520 --> 00:32:09,520
by this angle, that is the angle between O2A
to the power of R and O2A to the power L,
249
00:32:11,070 --> 00:32:17,530
from left to right, the rotation of same link
2 is given by this angle, that is 2 pi minus
250
00:32:17,530 --> 00:32:24,530
this. So if I call from right to left, that
is the forward motion is thetaf and return
251
00:32:26,710 --> 00:32:33,710
motion is thetar. Of course, thetar is nothing
but 2 pi minus thetaf and q.r.r-the quick
252
00:32:36,300 --> 00:32:43,300
return ratio of this mechanism, we obtain
as thetaf by thetar.
253
00:32:46,930 --> 00:32:53,690
Let me summarize, what we have learned today.
We have done the graphical method of displacement
254
00:32:53,690 --> 00:33:00,690
analysis and have discussed three different
examples of six link mechanism to show how
255
00:33:01,570 --> 00:33:07,330
graphically, we can determine the quick return
ratio or stroke length once the kinematic
256
00:33:07,330 --> 00:33:13,040
dimensions of those mechanisms are given.
We started with a slotted lever quick return
257
00:33:13,040 --> 00:33:19,430
mechanism used in shipper machines where we
saw that the quick return ratio depends on
258
00:33:19,430 --> 00:33:23,520
the stroke length.
Then we discussed the Whitworth quick return
259
00:33:23,520 --> 00:33:29,770
mechanism where the quick return effect is
independent of the stroke length and in the
260
00:33:29,770 --> 00:33:36,520
third example, we have seen how from a Grashof
Crank Rocker linkage. We can again get a quick
261
00:33:36,520 --> 00:33:43,270
return mechanism by using two more extra links
and converting it to a six link mechanism.
262
00:33:43,270 --> 00:33:48,770
We have also seen that whenever we need the
point of intersection of a straight line and
263
00:33:48,770 --> 00:33:53,090
a circle, we have to choose a correct point
of intersection.
264
00:33:53,090 --> 00:34:00,090
In our next lecture, we shall discuss a little
more involved and difficult problems on displacement
265
00:34:13,129 --> 00:34:20,129
analysis.
266
