    DEGREES OF FREEDOM -3

    DEGREES OF FREEDOM – 3 KINEMATIC CONSTRAINTS The motion of the independent rigid bodies can be controlled with kinematic constraints.A Kinematic constraint  between two or more rigid bodies decreases the degrees of freedom for the connected rigid bodies.Main classification of kinematic pairs falls in three categories. However these three categories are further sub divided as described […]

    DEGREES OF FREEDOM-2

    DEGREES OF FREEDOM-2 One particle in space has Degrees of freedom = 3 A body has Degrees of freedom in space =6 Thus analysis of a particle and rigid body is entirely different. Single plane degrees of freedom Rigid body in one plane has three degrees of freedom=One rotational + two transnational Single rigid body in […]
