A comparative study on application of decomposition method in function generation synthesis of over-constrained mechanisms
MetadataShow full item record
Double-spherical six-bar linkage is one of the Bennett over-constrained 6R linkages. Kinematic synthesis of such linkages can be tedious and impossible to solve for analytically. In order to cope with higher number of unknowns in these types of linkages, decomposition method is a valuable tool. This paper focuses on the function generation synthesis of double-spherical six-bar linkage. Two procedures for applying decomposition method are explained. Two numerical studies are conducted for both procedures to evaluate the performance of each procedure.
