Rationale
In industries, the mechanical engineers/technicians are supposed to manage functioning of equipment with proper planning, operation and maintenance of equipment. Such a functional requirement needs knowledge and skills of various motion and force transforming mechanisms and devices, such as four bar mechanism, belt pulley, clutches, flywheel, etc. This course is included in the curriculum to provide such necessary knowledge and skills in the area of mechanical equipment and devices to help in understanding of kinematics & dynamics of different equipment being used in industry. Thus it is a key course for mechanical engineers/technicians.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Draw inversions and determine velocity and acceleration of different mechanisms.
ii. Construct different types of cam profile for a given data.
iii. Calculate loss of power due to friction in various machine elements.
iv. Solve problems on power transmission.
v. Construct turning moment diagram.
vi. Calculate balancing mass and its position.
vii. Identify different types of vibration, their causes and remedies.
