The thesis focuses on kinematics analysis of a six-member planar mechanism using the MSC Adams software. The aim of the thesis is to create a model of a crank mechanism with rocking lever in the MSC Adams software and to perform a kinematics analysis on it. The first chapter is dedicated to mechanism theory. The second chapter contains theoretical basis for the issue of simultaneous movements and information about selected kinematics quantities. The next chapter contains a brief description of the solved mechanism. Next, graphic solution of the selected mechanism is performed for result comparison. The next chapter briefly describes the basic workspace of the MSC Adams and lists the process of modeling the selected mechanism. The results of the solutions are numerical values and graphs of selected kinematics quantities depicted in tables and graphically. Data acquired from the graphic solution and from computer modeling are compared and evaluated.
