5.1 INTRODUCTION In unit 4, you have studied instantaneous centre method for determining velocity of any point in a mechanism. This method is good for determining velocity and cannot be used determining acceleration. Also, if lines drawn for determining instantaneous centre are parallel, they cannot locate instantaneous centre. Even if these lines are nearly parallel, they will meet at a large distance to locate instantaneous centre within the limited size of the paper. In this unit, you will be explained relative velocity method and analytical method and how they can be used to determine velocity and then acceleration of a point in a mechanism. Acceleration is required for determining inertia forces which are required in dynamic analysis of a mechanism.

Objectives After going through this unit you should be able to •

5.2.2 General Method for Velocity and Acceleration We start with plane curvilinear motion using polar coordinates to denote the position vector ‘r’ and its angular coordinate ‘θ’ measured from a fixed reference axis as shown in Figure 5.2. Let er and eθ unit vectors in radial and transverse directions respectively. These unit vectors have positive directions in increasing r and θ. The vectors er and eθ are parallel to the positive senses of Vr and Vθ. Both these unit vectors will swing through the angle in the time dt. As shown in figure, their tips move through the distances | d er | = 1 × dθ = dθ in the direction of eθ, and through d eθ = 1 × d θ = d θ in the direction opposite to that of er. Therefore,

d er d er d θ  dθ = × = θ eθ , where → θ dt dθ dt dt d eθ d eθ d θ  = × = θ (− er ) = − θ er dt dθ dt

The motion of point A is common to both OA and BD. The velocity and acceleration of A are given by

VA = OA × ω =

15 × 10 = 1.5 m/s 100

a A = OA × ω2 =

15 × 10 = 15 m/s 2 100

The components of VA along BD are perpendicular to it are given by Vr = r = − 1.5 cos 48o = − 1.0 m/s

or

1.5 sin 48 θ = = 2.65 rad/s 42.06 100

The transverse component of acceleration of A is give by aθ = − a A sin 42o = − 15 sin 42o = − 10.037 m/s 2

Also

aθ = (r  θ) + 2 (r θ )

Therefore, angular acceleration of BD is 11.26 rad/s2 in clockwise sense.

5.3 MOTION REFERRED TO MOVING FRAMES OF REFERENCE The moving frame may, in general, translate and rotate as well as accelerate linearly or angularly. The purpose of the following treatment is to arrive at a systematic procedure for refering motion of a point with respect to a frame of reference if its motion is known in relation to another moving with respect to the former.

5.3.1 Relative Motion of Two Points Consier two points P1 and P2 moving with velocities V1 and V2 and accelerations a1 and a2. The velocity of P1 with respect to P2 is given and acceleration of P1 with respect to P2 is given by a12 = a1 − a2 V12 = V1 − V2

5.3.2 Plane Motion of a Link A motion is said to be a plane motion if all the points in the body stay in the same and parallel planes. The concept of plane motion enables us to consider only one of the parallel planes and analyse the motion of the points lying in that plane. The parallel planes may not appear to be identical in shape and size but there is no difficulty because any plane of the body can be hypothetically extended by a massless extension of the rigid body for the purpose of kinematic analysis. The mechanisms use links. Consider a link PQ which is shown displaced in Figure 5.5 to position P′ Q′ in a general plane motion. The motion may be considered to comprise translation of an arbitrary point on the link plus a rotation about an axis perpendicular to the plane and passing through that point. In an example in Figure 5.5 eight combinations are equivalent. P′

The translation and rotation are commutative. In Figures 5.5(e) and (f) show equal amount of translation and rotation but in Figures 5.5(a) and (b) translation is done first and rotation later. Similarly, Figures 5.5(a) and (e), (c) and (g), (d) and (h) are commutative. It may also be noted that, whatever be the mode of combination, the amount of rotation is same. The angular velocity of every point on the link is the same. It is, therefore, the customary to use the term angular velocity of the link rather than of any particular point on it. The fact that a general plane motion can be thought of as a superpositon of translation and rotation is a special case of Chasle’s theorem. The theorem, in general, states that any general motion of a rigid body can be considered as an appropriate superposition of a translational motion and a rotational motion.

SAQ 2 Determine velocity of top point of a rolling wheel if centre of the wheel is moving with velocity ‘v’.

5.4 METHOD OF RELATIVE VELOCITY AND ACCELERATION For this purpose, a link of a general shape may be considered to start with. It is shown in Figure 5.6. Let there by any arbitrary two points A and B moving with velocities VA and VB. The velocity of B relative to A may be represented by VBA. Let relative velocity VBA makes an angle θ with line joining A and B. VBA can be resolved into two components VBA cos θ along AB and VBA sin θ perpendicular to AB. Since the link is rigid, distance AB remains constant. Therefore, component of velocity of B relative to A along AB cannot exist. B

Therefore,

VBA cos θ = 0 or

or,

cos θ = 0

This means a rigid link has rotation relative to point A, as well as translation along velocity of A. VBA VB B

Therefore, the direction of VBA is perpendicular to the line joining A and B. If VA is known in magnitude and direction and for VB only direction is known, the magnitude can be determined by drawing a polygon as stated below : B

(a)

First the velocity of A, i.e. VA is plotted by assuming a suitable scale from an arbitrary selected point o which represents fixed reference. Let it be represented by ‘oa’.

(b)

Now, draw a line through o parallel to the direction of velocity of B, i.e. VB.

(c)

Next, draw a line through point ‘a’ which is parallel to the perpendicular to the line AB which meets the direction of VB at point ‘b’.

In this velocity polygon oab, ‘ob’ represents velocity VB in magnitude and direction. B

After drawing velocity polygon, we can proceed for determination of magnitude of acceleration of point B. If direction of acceleration of B is known and acceleration of point A is known in magnitude and direction. The vector equation can be written as follows : a B = a A + a BA t c c a BA = a BA + a BA ∴ a B = a A + a BA + a Bt A

Since

t c Where aBA is acceleration of B relative to A; aBA is tangential component of aBA and aBA is centripetal component of aBA.

c aBA

t It is directed from B to A along AB whereas aBA has direction perpendicular to AB. Acceleration polygon can be drawn as follows :

(a)

Plot acceleration of A in magnitude and direction by assuming suitable scale. aA is represented by o′a′.

(b)

c Plot centripetal component a BA by drawing line parallel to AB and represent c its magnitude according to the vector equation. a BA is represented by a′a′1.

(c)

From a1 draw a line perpendicular to aa1′ or parallel to the perpendicular to t AB to represent direction of aBA .

(d)

Draw a line parallel to the direction of acceleration of B, i.e. aB from fixed t reference o′ to meet the line representing direction of a BA . They meet at b′ . o′b′ represents acceleration of B in direction and magnitude. B

Figure 5.7

Solution

2π × 600 = 6.28 rad/s . The crank OA is a 60 rotating body about fixed centre O. Therefore, the velocity of point A is given by The angular velocity of crank OA, ω =

V A = ω × OA = 6.28 × 7.5 = 47.1 cm/s or 0.471 m/s

Select suitable position of pole o which represents fixed reference. Draw a line oa perpendicular to OA to represented velocity of A, i.e. VA in magnitude and direction. From point a, draw a line perpendicular to AB to represent direction of relative velocity VBA. Now draw another line parallel to the motion of the slider B from O to represent direction of the velocity of slider VB to meet another line through a at b. Thus ob represents velocity of B in magnitude and direction. B

Since crank OA rotates at uniform angular speed, therefore, acceleration of A will be centripetal acceleration. a A = a cA =

VA2 (0.471)2 = = 2.96 m/s 2 7.5 OA 100

It is directed from A towards O. c t a B = a A + a BA = a A + a BA + a BA

Select a suitable position of pole O which represents fixed reference. Plot acceleration of A, i.e. aA by drawing parallel to OA and representing its magnitude by a suitable scale. This is represented by o′a′. Now, draw a line from ‘a′’ parallel c to AB for aBA and represent its magnitude. This is represented by a′a′1. Now from t a′1 draw a line perpendicular to a′a′1 or AB to represent direction of aBA . Draw a line from o′ parallel to the motion of slider B to represent direction of motion of B. This line from o′ will meet another line from a′1 at b′. The acceleration of slider B is represented by o′b′ in magnitude and direction and it gives

aB = 215 m/s 2

5.5 ALTERNATIVE METHOD OF DETERMINING CORIOLIS’ COMPONENT OF ACCELERATION In rigid body rotation, distance of a point from the axis of rotation remains fixed. If a link rotates about a fixed centre and ,at the same time, a point moves over it along the link, the absolute acceleration of the point is given by the vector sum of

36

(a)

the absolute acceleration of the coincident point relative to which the point, under consideration, is moving;

(b)

acceleration of the point relative to the coincident point; and

(c)

Coriolis’ component of acceleration.

Figure 5.11 shows a link 2 rotating at constant angular speed say ω2, it moves from position OC to OC1. During this interval of time, the slider link 3 moves outwards from position B to B2 with constant velocity VBA (A is point on link 2 shich coincides with B which is on link 3). The motion of the slider 3 from B to B2 may be considered in the following three stages :

Also

The tangential component of the velocity perpendicular to the link is say Vt and it is given by Vt = r ω

In this case ω has been assumed constant and slider moves with constant velocity. Therefore, tangential velocity of point B on the slider 3 will result in uniform increase in tangential velocity because of uniform increase in value of r in the above equation. C

Therefore,

cor aBA = 2 ω2 VBA

The directional relationship of VBA and 2 ω2 VBA is shown in Figures 5.11(b), (c), (d) and (e). If slider moves towards centre of rotation o, its velocity can be transmitted to other side so that it is directed outwards. The direction of Coriolis’ component of acceleration is given by the direction of the relative velocity vector for the two coincident points rotated by 90o in the direction of the angular velocity of the rotation of the link. If the angular velocity ω2 and the velocity VBA are varying, they will not affect the expression of the Coriolis’ component of acceleration but their instant values will be used in determining the magnitude and this value will be applicable at that instant.

SAQ 3 What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for the Coriolis’ component of acceleration to exist?

5.6 KLEIN'S CONSTRUCTION FOR DETERMINING VELOCITY AND ACCELERATION OF SLIDER CRANK MECHANISM There are some special methods for determining velocity and acceleration of slider in slider crank chain. Case I

In this case, crank rotation is assumed uniform. The configuration diagram of slider crank chain is shown in Figure 5.16(a). The method is illustrated in following steps : (a)

Draw configuration diagram at a suitable scale.

(b)

Extend PC if necessary to meet perpendicular to stroke line at M.

(c)

Draw a circle with C as centre and CM as radius.

(d)

Draw another circle with CP as diameter.

(e)

Draw common chord KL of these two circles and extend if necessary to meet line of stroke at N. OCQN is acceleration polygon.

NO gives acceleration of piston at a scale equal to ω2 × configuration scale. P′ O′ K X C

OC → Centripetal acceleration of C,

Motion Analysis of Planar Mechanism and Synthesis

CQ → Centripetal acceleration of P relative to C, QN → Tangential component of acceleration, and NO → Acceleration of piston. Join K with P and C. The triangle CKP and CQK are similar ∴

CQ CK = CK CP

CQ =

But

CK = CM

Therefore,

CQ =

CK 2 CP

CM 2 CP

The acceleration according to the methods discussed earlier has been drawn in Figure 5.16(b). The acceleration polygon o′ c′ p″ p′ appears to be similar to OCQN. If ω is angular velocity of crank, VC = OC ω and similarly velocity of piston VP = ω OM. Also,

VPC = ω CM

⎛V 2 ⎞ Therefore, it indicates that CQ represents centripetal acceleration ⎜ PC ⎟ to the ⎜ PC ⎟ ⎝ ⎠ scale ω2 × configuration scale. Thus these two polygons are similar and ON represents acceleration of the piston to the above mentioned scale. For any point X on the connecting rod, draw a line through X parallel to the line of stroke to intersect CN at x and acceleration of x is given by ‘ox’. Case II

In this case, crank rotates and has angular acceleration. The acceleration polygon is reproduced in Figure 5.16(c). The point Q is determined in the same way as in Case I. From O, draw a line perpendicular to CO and plot tangential acceleration OO1. Join C with O1. Through O1, draw a line parallel to line of stroke to meet KL and N1. The acceleration polygon is O1 C Q N1 and O1 N1 is acceleration of the piston. For a point X on CP join x (determined in Case I) with O1. This acceleration polygon is similar to Figure 5.16(c).

Analysis by Analytical Methods

5.7 SUMMARY The motion of a point can always be related to any other point through relative velocity and relative acceleration. A general plane motion which has neither pure translation nor pure rotation can be systematically analysed by moving frame of references. The resulting motion is the vector sum of rotating motion and translation. The motion of any point in a mechanism can be related to a point whose motion is known. Therefore, starting from a point of known motion, the motion of any other point can be determined with the help of relative velocity and relative acceleration. The direction of relative velocity is always normal to the line joining the two points (because of rigid body concept). If distance between these two points does not change, the link is subjected to centripetal component and tangential component of acceleration. If the distance tends to change, because points are not connected with each other, there may be Coriolis’ component and sliding component of acceleration in addition to the earlier component of acceleration. The Coriolis’ component of acceleration is equal to twice the product of angular speed and sliding velocity is magnitude and perpendicular to rotating line. The motion can be determined analytically as well as graphically. You will know more about analysis in the next unit.

5.8 KEY WORDS Relative Velocity

: Velocity of a point in relation to any other point.

Relative Acceleration

: Acceleration of a point in relation to any other point.

Coriolis’ Component of Acceleration

: It is equal to twice the product of angular velocity and sliding velocity over which slider is sliding and acts perpendicular to link.

Polygon

: It is a closed figure made by several lines.

Klein’s Construction

: It is an alternative method which was devised by Prof. Klein for determining acceleration of piston in slider crank mechanism.
