Radially expandable ring-like structure with antiparallelogram loops
(Azerbaijan Technical University, 2017-09-11)
As they constitute a substantial percent of deployable structures, scissor mechanisms are widely studied. This being so, new approaches to the design of scissor mechanisms still emerge. Usually design methods consider the ...
Function generation of a watt II type planar mechanism with prismatic output using decomposition and correction method
(Azerbaijan Technical Universit, 2017-09-11)
The method of decomposition is a useful method for function generation with multi-loop mechanisms. Recently introduced correction methods applied together with the method of decomposition allows the designer to cancel out ...
Computing the safe working zone of a 3-RRS parallel manipulator
Determination of the safe working zone (SWZ) of a parallel manipulator is a one-time computational task with several permanent benefits. As this subspace of the workspace of the manipulator is free of both the loss- and ...
Design of a cable-driven four-bar mechanism for arm rehabilitation
This paper presents the design of an assistive mechanism to be used for the rehabilitation of human arm. First the motions of two types of rehabilitation exercises are described. The motions are planar motions, so a planar ...
Path generation synthesis of planar double-slider linkages via the elliptic coupler curve
The path generation synthesis of a double-slider linkage is performed for a given elliptic curve. It is shown that there are ∞2 linkages that can trace the same ellipse. The formulation for obtaining all such linkages is ...
Alternating error effects on decomposition method in function generation synthesis
In approximate function generation synthesis methods, error between the desired function’s output and designed mechanism’s output oscillate about zero error while crossing the zero error margin at precision points. The ...
