ABSTRACT

The article deals with the kinematics analysis of crank mechanism realized by three methods followed by comparison of achieved results. The crank mechanism is the most commonly used mechanism in practice; it is the part of the various machines and almost
every car. It belongs to the fundamental mechanisms whereon the kinematic characteristics of mechanism are investigated by students on FMT TU Košice with seat in Prešov within the scope of Technical mechanics lessons. Article hints as the utilization of suitable software can saves labour but the knowledge of theoretical
mechanics principles for the problem solution are necessary. The paper was written thanks to support provided by the project KEGA num. 270-014TUKE-4/2010.

Keywords: crank mechanism, position, velocity, acceleration, computer aid
