Describe stepwise procedure for determination of velocity and acceleration by Klein’s construction with suitable data.
Steps in Klein’s construction :
Klein’s construction is a simpler construction to get velocity and acceleration diagrams. For example : for reciprocating engine mechanism OPC. draw a circle with PC as diameter as shown. and obtain velocity diagram OCM ie. produce PC to cut perpendicular to line of stroke in ‘M’ . Draw another circle with ‘C’ as center and “CM” as radius cutting the first circle in points K and L. Join “KL” which is the chord common to both the circles. Let it cuts PC and OP in “Q” and “N” respectively. Then “OCQN” is the required quadrilateral which is similar to acceleration diagram.
