Absfmct-In this paper the concept of transmission lines for the topological synthesis of articulated gear mechanisms is introduced. It is shown that the structural matrix, which relates input displacements to the joint angles of a multi-degree-of-freedom, articulated gear mechanism, can be derived using the concept of transmission lines. Applying the characteristics of structural matrix, a new methodology for the topological synthesis of articulated gear mechanisms has been established. All the… CONTINUE READING
