Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET), JAIN (Deemed-to-be University) organized an online guest lecture titled “Applications of Kinematic of Machine” on May 9, 2021. The guest speaker to deliver the speech was Professor Sangamesh Sirsige from Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Bidar. Professor Sangamesh holds ten years of rich teaching experience in metal forming and machine design. A total of 100 students attended the lecture.
The lecture discussed at length the principles of mechanisms and their practical applications to help students identify and analyze velocities, acceleration, and forces. The students were guided on how to analyze and solve problems related to cams, flywheels, governors, and gyroscopes. The lecture was organized to provide the fundamental concepts of machines, mechanisms, and related terminologies. The students learned to analyze the kinematics of various linkage mechanisms and design mechanisms of basic cam and flywheel systems for different machinery.
The lecture could materialize and become successful due to the efforts of Dr. Nagraj Patil, Assistant Professor, Mechanical Department, FET, JAIN (Deemed-to-be University). The event also included a feedback session for the participants, and the responses were mostly positive. Overall the event was a success and provided insights into kinematics.
