A computer-aided linkage analysis system

by F. Bitonti, D. W. Cooper, D. N. Frayne, H. H. Hansen
An experimental system for the kinematic analysis of two- and three-dimensional mechanical linkages is outlined. The structure of the programmed system, the input language, and the method of storage allocation are described. The class of problems treated by the system is discussed in brief, as are the basic vector equations used in obtaining solutions for position, velocity, acceleration, and force of linkage elements.
