Engineering Drawing Special Curves

Cycloidal Curves Cycloidal curves are generated by a fixed point in the circumference of a circle when it rolls without slipping along a fixed straight line or circular path. The rolling circle is called the generating circle, the fixed straight line, the directing line and the fixed circle, the directing circle. Cycloid A cycloid is a curve generated by a fixed point on the circumference of a circle, when it rolls without slipping along a straight line. To draw a cycloid, given the radius R of the generating circle. Construction 1. With centre O and radius R, draw the given…
