Design and kinematic analysis of slider crank mechanism using Catia and Mat Lab
Slider-crank mechanism plays a significant role in the mechanical manufacturing areas. The slider-crank mechanism is a particular four-bar mechanism that exhibits both linear and rotational motion simultaneously. It is also called as four-bar linkage configurations. Analysis of four bar linkage configuration is very important. In this project four configurations are taken into account to simulate and analyze the mechanism. A CAD model is prepared in CATIA V5 to simulate the mechanism and also to specify the accurate path of the mechanism. And the analytical method is used to define the various position of the crank and respective position of slider in Slider Crank mechanism is studied. rnMATLAB programs are provided for kinematic analysis of a Slider Crank mechanism that contains a coupler point. The MATLAB program performs position, velocity, and acceleration analysis for a given angle of the crank or for a given input. This program solves for all the unknown parameters and reports those results in excel sheet as an output in the numerical form.
