Abstract

A three-counterweight technique for simultaneously minimizing the maximum values of such dynamic reactions as the bearing force, the input moment, and the shaking moment of a constant input speed four-bar linkage, while additionally obtaining a prescribed maximum value of the shaking force, is introduced. The chosen optimization formulation is new to the field of mechanism design; a certain minimization parameter is made the objective function.
