The Burmester field is the area swept by a Burmester curve as one or more of the design variables change. This paper presents the envelope of the Burmester field for more than one design parameter. It is shown that the envelope consists of various segments. These segments are found to be portions of Burmester curves and curves found using envelope theory. A two- and three-parameter example are provided and discussed. The application of the Burmester field concept to the design of linkages is also discussed. This includes the limitations on the selection of the second dyad.
