Abstract

An analytical solution to moving pivot specification of motion generating dyads at three precision positions is derived using the complex number formulation. This solution enables replicating the functionality of a well-known graphical construction for three position synthesis. It complements an existing complex number based solution for ground pivot specification. The solution is demonstrated by a practical example of designing a vehicle suspension linkage. The example also demonstrates how moving pivot specification can be applied to synthesize multiloop linkages.
