Function generation synthesis of planar slider-crank linkages for given 3 positions and a dead-center position
MetadataShow full item record
Function generation for finitely many positions and dead-center design problems are generally separately handled in the literature. This paper presents a mixed formulation for planar slider-crank linkages where three precision points and a folded or extended dead-center position are to be satisfied. The formulation results in an 8th degree univariate. Examples show that generally there are four real solutions, only two of which result in distinct solutions.
