Abstract

A new numerical procedure which solves for degrees of freedom of a mechanism is presented in this paper. By input of the coordinates of all the joints, we can calculate the current degree-of-freedom of each independent loop, check symmetry, check the idle degree-of-freedom of the mechanism and find the total degree-of-freedom of a mechanism for any desired configuration. Several practical examples illustrate the usefulness of this new, totally analytical approach.
