Abstract

A general approach to the kinematic synthesis of spatial mechanisms made up of dyads is presented using a uniform displacement matrix method. Design for a finite number of discrete positions of a coupler body in space is developed along parallel lines with the planar mechanism design complex number method. Loop equations are written for a variety of spatial dyads. The number of prescribed positions and the joint constraints account for variance in the number of solution dyads produced. The proposed solution can be applied to lower pair joints with extension to triad design also feasible.
