Abstract

This paper presents a technique for the design of an adjustable spatial crank and rocker mechanism with symmetrical output. The design method considers force transmission effectiveness and geometric proportions. An example application is provided. The RSSR mechanism appears to exhibit good potential as an adjustable crank and rocker mechanism where symmetrical output behavior is desired. This positive suitability suggest that the use of other adjustable three-dimensional linkages may merit further study for applications requiring special motion requirements. Space requirements do not permit the inclusion of more than a minimal sampling of design curves; however, the relationships presented in the previous sections could be used to develop an entire atlas of design curves if desired.
