Hello all, I require your expertise on building an approach or a framework to identify and measure the jerk or vibration in a mechanical system with a slider. What I have is a slider (S) with a vertical link (L1) attached to it and another horizontal link (L2) attached at the tip of the link (L1). I would like to understand what approach to take in identifying the jerk experienced by the above system when slider S starts to move at an acceleration (a). I only need to understand the approach to take, it could be a mathematical modeling and simulation or testing. But a step by step procedure alone is sufficient, I can execute the project from that point on wards. I understand the description is very vague, but this is all the information I have and I am expected to gather the inputs that are required to solve. Any suggestions or critics are most welcomed, since there is very less information that I have provided.
