Stephenson chain branch analysis: Four generic stationary configurations and one new linkage polynomial

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The stationary configurations of the Stephenson linkages have been defined in the literature. All stationary configurations of the Stephenson six-bars are mapped to the Stephenson III linkage inversion and represented as four 'generic' stationary configurations. A graphical interpretation of these stationary configurations is presented. It may be used to determine these stationary configurations. Analytical solutions of the first two generic stationary configurations are referenced. A twentieth order polynomial, whose roots correspond to the third generic stationary configuration, is derived and discussed.
