Synopsis:

Importance of multibody systems (MBS) mechanics in mechanical engineering. The role of MBS in CAD systems. Succesive approximation method in mechanism design. Modelling of real mechanical systems. Structure analysis of MBS. Kinematic pair. Kinematic chain and system group.Structural description. Application of graph theory. Description of point and body motion. Different notations: vector, matrix, quaternion, screw. Position, velocity, acceleration solutions. Basic motions. Planar and spherical motions. Kinematic analysis of MBS with lower kinematic pairs. Simple open chain, simple mechanism. MBS with higher kinematic pairs. Overconstrained and singular cases of MBS.
