Reduction Of Inertia-Induced Forces In A General Spatial Mechanism, Sahidur Rahman

Dissertations

A computer-aided design procedure has been developed for minimizing the adverse effects of the inertia-induced forces by optimum mass redistribution amongst the links of high speed general spatial linkages. The evaluation of an optimality criterion for the mass redistribution of the mechanism will be carried out with the aid of a quadratic programming technique. This has been found to be successful in minimizing inertia induced forces and torques. The validity of the optimization procedure will be demonstrated by application to one kind of spatial linkage.

No literature has been found on the balancing of a general spatial mechanism, since its ...
