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 ...
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 ...
