A General Program for the Solution of Non-Linear Problems in Kinematic Analysis of Mechanisms
In this paper we present a new method for the solution of some non-linear problems in plane lower-pair mechanisms.This method is based in considering the mechanism built up with binary links (bars) with revolute (R) pairs, higher order links can be formed connecting bars in such a way that no relative motion is allowed between them; prismatic (P) pairs are also considered.Four different position problems are solved in this work: initial position, finite displacement,static equilibrium and deformated position: The theorical background, software implementation and examples are presented.
