Example 3-9.2 Slider-Crank Quick Return for Specified Time Ratio. Problem: Design a slider-crank to provide a time ratio of 1:1.25 for the slider motion. Solution: 1. Calculate ± , ² , and ³ using equations 3.1 and 3.2 from the textbook; i.e., T R = + = 360 (3.1) = 180 ² == 180 ² ´ (3.2) In this example, = 160 o , = 200 o , and = 20 o 2. Choose reasonable values for the lengths of the crank, L 2 , and coupler, L 3 . In this example, we choose L 2 = 1.0 and L 3 = 2.5. 3. Construct the triangle B 1 O 2 B 2 as shown in Figure (a). O 2 is the position of the pin joint

The bias (offset) a can be determined from the figure or it can be determined analytically. 4. Complete the design of the mechanism as shown in Figure (b).
