The Mechanisms and Dynamics Lab teaches undergraduate and postgraduate students about the practical aspects of kinematics as well as the dynamics of machinery. The lab has several state-of-the-art experimental setups for students of Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering. This includes various models of mechanism including slider crank mechanisms and inversion of four bar mechanisms that provide practical insight into the kinematic analysis of mechanisms. These models are also simulated for multibody dynamic simulations.
