The course aims to introduce fundamentals of forces induced due and responsible for the the motion of parts of mechanism / machine. This forces most of the time are unwanted and may cause adverse effect on the function of the mechanism or machine. Hence, the techniques to determine them and counter them are required to be learned.
Course Outcome
1. Determine unbalanced forces and bearing reactions for a system of rotating masses.
2. Determine unbalanced forces in reciprocating engines.
3. Determine natural frequency of mechanical systems represented in lumped form.
4. Determine critical speed shafts with unbalanced rotors and cam-follower system (to avoid jump)

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work - The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
