Pune University Production Engineering 4th Sem-Theory of Machines Exam – Download Previous Year’s Question Papers
Theory of machines underscores the basic concepts related to machines like machine dynamics, kinematics, mechanisms of working, relative motion, concepts of displacement, velocity, acceleration, degrees of freedom and advance problems. Force analysis is a significant part of the theories and the syllabus drafts the concepts of equilibrium, friction, fluctuation, speed, tension, engines, energy and synthesis of mechanisms. There is extensive use of diagrams, graphs and numerical problems in the explanatory portion of the theories. Another section includes study of belts, chains, pulleys, levers, power transmission, gravity, velocity ratio and related concepts. Another part devotes itself to the analysis of the different types of dynamometers like Bevis-Gibson's flash light torsion dynamometer, transmission and brake dynamometers, clutches, brakes, screw jacks, plates and bands. Governors section includes the characteristic features, functions and varieties of governors and their sensitivity and stability. The topics involve equations and algorithms for proper construction of the base of the theories.
