## 15 Kinematics of Rigid Bodies

• Kinematics of rigid bodies: relations between
time and the positions, velocities, and
accelerations of the particles forming a rigid
body.
• Classification of rigid body motions:
- translation:
• rectilinear translation
• curvilinear translation
- rotation about a fixed axis
- general plane motion
- motion about a fixed point
- general motion

Translation
• Consider rigid body in translation:
- direction of any straight line inside the
body is constant,
- all particles forming the body move in
parallel lines.
• For any two particles in the body,

## • General plane motion is neither a translation nor

a rotation.
• General plane motion can be considered as the
sum of a translation and rotation.
• Displacement of particles A and B to A2 and B2
can be divided into two parts:
- translation to A2 and B1
- rotation of B1 about A2 to B2

arbitrary reference point A and a simultaneous rotation

Absolute and Relative Velocity in Plane Motion

• Selecting point B as the reference point and solving for the velocity vA of end A
and the angular velocity  leads to an equivalent velocity triangle.
• vA/B has the same magnitude but opposite sense of vB/A. The sense of the
relative velocity is dependent on the choice of reference point.
• Angular velocity  of the rod in its rotation about B is the same as its rotation
about A. Angular velocity is not dependent on the choice of reference point.

Instantaneous Center of Rotation in Plane Motion
• Plane motion of all particles in a slab can always be
replaced by the translation of an arbitrary point A and a
rotation about A with an angular velocity that is
independent of the choice of A.

## • The same translational and rotational velocities at A are

obtained by allowing the slab to rotate with the same
angular velocity about the point C on a perpendicular to
the velocity at A.

• The velocity of all other particles in the slab are the same
as originally defined since the angular velocity and
translational velocity at A are equivalent.

## • As far as the velocities are concerned, the slab seems to

rotate about the instantaneous center of rotation C.

## Instantaneous Center of Rotation in Plane Motion

• If the velocity at two points A and B are known, the
instantaneous center of rotation lies at the intersection
of the perpendiculars to the velocity vectors through A
and B .

## • If the velocity vectors are parallel, the instantaneous

center of rotation is at infinity and the angular velocity
is zero.

## • If the velocity vectors at A and B are perpendicular to

the line AB, the instantaneous center of rotation lies at
the intersection of the line AB with the line joining the
extremities of the velocity vectors at A and B.

## • If the velocity magnitudes are equal, the instantaneous

center of rotation is at infinity and the angular velocity
is zero.

## Motion About a Fixed Point

• The most general displacement of a rigid body with a
fixed point O is equivalent to a rotation of the body
• With the instantaneous axis of rotation and angular

velocity  , the velocity of a particle P of the body is

 dr  
v r

and the acceleration of the particle P is

       d
a    r      r   .
dt

• The angular acceleration  represents the velocity of
the tip of  .

• As the vector  moves within the body and in space,
it generates a body cone and space cone which are
tangent along the instantaneous axis of rotation.
• Angular velocities have magnitude and direction and
obey parallelogram law of addition. They are vectors.

General Motion
• For particles A and B of a rigid body,
  
vB  v A  vB A

## • Particle A is fixed within the body and motion of

the body relative to AX’Y’Z’ is the motion of a
body with a fixed point
   
v B  v A    rB A

## • Similarly, the acceleration of the particle P is

  
aB  a A  aB A
 a A    rB A      rB A 
     

## • Most general motion of a rigid body is equivalent to:

- a translation in which all particles have the same
velocity and acceleration of a reference particle A, and
- of a motion in which particle A is assumed fixed.
