FRAMES Similar to trusses, frames are generally fixed, load carrying structures. The main difference between a frame and a truss is that in a frame at least one member is a “multi force member” (çoklu kuvvet elemanı). A multi force member supports three or more forces or at least two forces and one or more couples. In contrast with a truss, the force or moment can be exerted to any point on the frame member; it does not have to be applied the joint as in the trusses.
MACHINES Machines are structures which contain moving parts and are designed to transmit input forces or couples to output forces or couples. Therefore a machine is an assembly of rigid and sturdy members that are capable of generating work by means of some kind of motion. A mechanism is a term used to describe the physical devices which enable the parts of a machine to conduct the intended movements.
A machine may contain several mechanisms. Machines are designed to change forces, enhance and amplify their magnitudes and transmit them. Whether a machine is as simple as a hand tool or as complex as an airplane, the main aim is to convert input forces into output forces.
The main difference between a frame and a machine is that although frames are rigid structures, machines are not. Machines may be fixed to some supporting surface or body, but they will always consist moving parts.
The forces acting on each member of a connected system are found by isolating the member with a FBD and applying the equations of equilibrium. The principle of action and reaction must be carefully observed when we represent the forces of interaction on the separate FBDs. It would be appropriate to identify the two forces members in the frame, if there is any, before starting withthe solution.
In order to determine the forces in a frame or machine, it is divided into a sufficient number of members or groups of members, but initially the support forces to be used in the analysis must generally be determined from the equilibrium of the whole frame.
The structure is then, dismembered and the equilibrium of each member is considered separately. The equilibrium equations for the several parts will be related through the terms involving the forces of interaction. It should be kept in mind that when going from one member to the other, the direction of the interaction force must be changed in accordance with Newton’s third law.
In general the FBDs of pins in the structures are not drawn; pins are considered as a complementary part of one of the two members it connects. It must be clearly decided which member the pin will belong to. Whereas, the FBD of a pin will be considered if: • It connects three or more members, • It connects a support and two or more members, • A load is directly applied to the pin.
The mechanical efficiency of a machine: Mechanical Efficiency Machines are considered as “ideal machines” when the work output is equal to the energy input. It is impossible to build such machines. In a real machine friction forces always generate useless work which causes loss of energy, therefore, work output is always less than the energy input. In other words, the mechanical efficiency is always less than one,h<1.
Mechanical Advantage: Mechanical advantage is the ratio of the output force of a machine to the input force necessary to work the machine. This concept is totally different from the mechanical efficiency and should not be mixed with it. Mechanical advantage is generally greater than one.
Small bolt cutter operated by hand for cutting small bolts and rods is shown. For a hand grip P=150 N. Determine the force Q developed by each jaw on the rod to be cut.
The forces acting on the two parts of the bolt cutter behave as mirror images of each other with respect to x-axis. Thus, we can not have an action on one member in the +x direction and its reaction on the other member in the –x direction. Consequently the forces at E and B have no x-components and CD is a two-force member. Mechanical advantage
