Abstract

This paper describes a new approach to the kinematic analysis of planar mechanisms. The basis of the analytical method is a generic four-bar sub-mechanism which is used as the single building block from which other composite mechanisms may be created. A computer program has been written embodying this method and has been demonstrated to operate successfully providing animated displays of displacement, velocity and acceleration diagrams for a wide range of complex mechanisms.
