Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will have mastered the prinicples of systematically designing transmission systems and can classify and characterize different types of transmission systems. They will be able to describe and design movements of working bodies, dimension selected gear types according to given kinematic requirements and design them under kinetostatic aspects.
