Kinematic Synthesis of Planar 4-Bar Path Generators for Finite Line Positions
Although the kinematic synthesis of planar function, point-path and motion generators are vastly studied in the literature, surprisingly synthesis of line-path generators is not formulized in detail. This study presents the formulization of the planar 4-bar line-path generator synthesis problem for up to 5 homologous positions. Numerical examples for 3 and 4 line positions are presented for the illustration of the formulations. © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
