Question: 1 identify the mechanism shown in the file mechanismabcjpg as...

Question details

1. Identify the mechanism shown in the file MechanismABC.jpg as a Watt I, Watt I Stephenson I, Stephenson II, or Stephenson II. The square blocks represent the ground link. MechanismABC.jpg 2. For the auto steering mechanism shown in the pdf file, sketch a kinematic diagram as a planar mechanism and determine the mobility of the mechanism (as shown). Ignore the steering wheel, Pitman arm, and valve actuating link and consider the mechanism input to be the hydraulic cylinder. The hydraulic cylinder is two links with a sliding joint between them slider in a slot). The length of the two links between the frame and the steering arm is the input. The mechanism as shown thus consists of the hydraulic cylinder (two parts), the steering crank, the steering link, the tie rod, and the steering knuckle. Note that the kingpin axis can be considered part of the frame. This is strictly a spatial mechanism but we can closely approximate it as a planar mechanism. This ignores the operation of the suspension which allows the wheel to move vertically with respect to the frame. 3. Can you rationalize the mobility you get in Question 2 with the fact that there is a single input? Submit your assignment on paper in class.
