2 Week 2 Class I case: s+L<P+Q Week 2 Class II case: s+L>P+Q • Triple-rockers : no link can fully rotate Week 2 Class III case: s+L=P+Q • Double-cranks or crank-rockers : “change points” twice when the links all become colinear Week 2 Limiting conditions • Toggle positions : they are determined by the colinearity of two of the moving links • In a toggle (triangular) position, it doesn’t allow further input motion in one direction from one of its rocker links • A fourbar triple-rocker mechanism has four and a Grashof double-rocker mechanism has two toggle positions. • A Grashof fourbar crank-rocker linkage has two stationary (toggle) positions
3 Week 2 Transmission angle • Transmission angle μ : then angle between the output link and the coupler. It is taken as the acute angle (<=90 0 ). It varies continuously from some minimum to some maximum value as the linkage goes through its range of motion • Most machine designers try to keep the minimum transmission angle above about 40 0 to promote smooth running and good force transmission Week 2 Add a dyad to control motion •C a s e 1 : r o c k e r o u t p u t : for a Grashof crank- rocker mechanism, the output function is defined as two discrete angular position of the rocker • Case 2: coupler output : two positions of a line in the plane are defined as the output. This solution will frequently lead to a triple-rocker. the fourbar triple-rocker can be motor driven by an addition of a dyad (twobar chain), which results in a Watt sixbar
