Abstract A complete kinematic analysis for the geared five-bar mechanism has been completed. The analysis included three separate cases for the gear ratios of the mechanism. A position synthesis was performed using the Newton-Raphson Method in which no singularities were determined for any of the three cases. The first- and second-order kinematic coefficients were solved and the angular velocity and acceleration was calculated. The values for the first-and-second order

Unformatted text preview: kinematic coefficients were checked using the method of instant centers as well as the finite difference method. The coupler point P was analyzed as well where a plot of the coupler curve was generated. The velocity and acceleration of the coupler point was also determined. It was determined that an initial value of the angle of link 3 between 90 and 100 degrees would produce a coupler curve that did not cross over itself....
