This course is one of the program specific courses for CDEPR. In the course earlier knowledge fom the DoP-courses in product development is integrated with application of mathematics, mechanics, numerical methods and vibration control. The course is based on a product development project with elements of modeling and simulation.

Content and learning outcomes
In the course, mechanisms will be designed and analysed, where the force and geometry analyses result in equation systems with at least ten unknown variables, so the equation systems (both linear and non-linear) are easiest to solve numerically in Matlab. The force analyses result in loads on the product which can be used for following dimensioning with strength calculations. The force analyses also result in loads on machine components for subsequent design of these components.
CAD will be used as a design and analysis tool, e.g. for motion and FEM analyses.
The work is documented in technical reports that include force and geometry analyses, strength calculations and choice of components.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student should be able to:
1. Carry out analyses of link mechanisms to achieve a desired movement
2. Carry out kinematic analyses of link mechanisms
3. Carry out force analyses for link mechanisms
4. Choose and dimension machine components such that they jointly result in a desired systems behaviour
5. Suggest design solutions for assembling machine components
6. Verify mathematical models and estimate fairness of the results of calculations and simulations
7. Document mathematical models and results from calculations and simulations in a technical report

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL1 - Hand in Exercises, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- PRO1 - Project, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- TEN1 - Written Examination, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
