A closed-form solution of spatial sliders for rigid-body guidance
This paper presents a closed-form solution to the four-position synthesis problem by using a spatial slider, which is a spatial dyad of two perpendicularly intersected cylindrical joints. We utilize the dialytic elimination ...
Function generation synthesis with a 2-DoF overconstrained double-spherical 7R mechanism using the method of decomposition and least squares approximation
This study addresses the approximate function generation synthesis with an overconstrained two degrees-of-freedom double spherical 7R mechanism using least squares approximation with equal spacing of the design points on ...
Function synthesis of the planar 5R mechanism using least squares approximation
In this paper, the problem of function generation synthesis of planar 5R mechanism is studied using the least squares approximation method with equal spacing of the design points. The study represents a case study for ...
Kinematic design of a reconfigurable deployable canopy
A reconfigurable and deployable mechanism is proposed for a canopy which can also be used as a tent or a semi-open structure. The proposed single degree-of-freedom mechanism has four as-sembly modes. The conditions for ...
Derivation of input/output relationships for the Bennett 6R linkages based on the method of decomposition
The Bennett overconstrained 6R linkages are the double-planar, the double-spherical and the plano-spherical 6R linkages. These mechanisms are obtained by combining simple planar and/or spher-ical mechanisms and then removing ...
