Abstract

LINCAGES-4, a four-bar synthesis and analysis software package, has been expanded to include balancing of standard in-line mechanisms. For the given basic dimensions of a Grashof crank-rocker linkage, the parameters of an unbalanced standard in-line mechanism are first calculated. This linkage is then force-balanced with circular counterweights. The root-mean square and maximum dimensionless ratios are calculated for the balanced linkage to optimize shaking moment. A design example is included. LINCAGES-4 runs on the DEC Pro-350 and the IBM PC.
