Geometric Design of Linkages

by

Geometric Design of Linkages Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is an introduction to the mathematical theory of design for articulated mechanical systems known as linkages. The focus is on sizing mechanical constraints that guide the movement of a workpiece, or end effector, of the system. The function of the device is prescribed as a set of positions to be reachable by the end effector; and the mechanical constraints are formed by joints that limit relative movement. The goal is to find all the devices that can achieve a specific task. Formulated in this way the design problem is purely geometric in character. Robot manipulators, walking machines, and mechanical hands are examples of articulated mechanical systems that rely on simple mechanical constraints to provide a complex workspace for the end effector. This new edition includes research results of the past decade on the synthesis of multiloop planar and spherical linkages, and the use of homotopy methods and Clifford algebras in the synthesis of spatial serial chains. One new chapter on the synthesis of spatial serial chains introduces the linear product decomposition of polynomial systems and

Synopsis:

Now in a fresh edition that includes recent results on the synthesis of multiloop planar and spherical linkages and the use of homotopy methods and Clifford algebras in synthesizing spatial serial chains, this volume is a foundation for linkage design theory.
