Optimal Kinematic Synthesis of Planar Mechanism, Part I: Offset Crank-Slider Mechanism

  title={Optimal Kinematic Synthesis of Planar Mechanism, Part I: Offset Crank-Slider Mechanism},
  author={Galal Ali Hassaan},
Optimal synthesis of mechanisms is a successful approach for mechanism design to satisfy all the desired characteristics of the designed mechanism. The crank - slider mechanism has wide industrial applications and providing an offset feature provides a design with a stroke greater than its crank length and a time ratio greater than one. The optimal design problem in this case is a constrained multi-dimensional problem. Powell optimization technique is used to minimize a special objective… Expand
