This course focuses on mechanical devices that are designed to have mobility to perform certain functions. In this process they are subjected to some forces. The study of Dynamics of machinery leads us to design machines by understanding the relationship between the movement of various parts of machine and the different forces that are acting on them. This course will provide the knowledge on how to analyze the motions of mechanisms and design mechanisms to give required strength. This includes relative static and dynamic force analysis and consideration of gyroscopic effects on aeroplanes, ships, automobiles like two wheelers and four wheelers.

The course will also cover fundamental concepts on the vibration of mechanical systems including, but not limited to, review of systems with one degree for freedom, Lagrange's equations of motion for multiple degree of freedom systems, introduction to matrix methods, transfer functions for harmonic response, impulse response, and step response, convolution integrals for response to arbitrary inputs, principle frequencies and modes, applications to critical speeds, measuring instruments, isolation, torsional systems, introduction to nonlinear problems
