This course deals with advanced kinematic synthesis and analysis of
mechanisms. Graphical and analytical methods for the synthesis of planar linkages will be presented. Techniques for velocity and acceleration analysis of complex mechanisms will be discussed. Force analysis of linkages will be introduced. Techniques for the synthesis and analysis of spatial mechanisms will be introduced.
