Paper Title:
Optimisation Design of Six-Bar Double Dwell Mechanisms: A New Approach
  Abstract

This paper introduces a new approach for me-chanical design of planar six-bar linkages with rotary joints which produce two dwells in each cycle of the input crank. The approach builds on the concept of function generation in a simple manner. The synthesis problem is posed as a single-objective constrained optimisation problem. A genetic algorithm-based optimisation scheme, namely the Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm-II (NSGA-II) has been used for solving the optimisation problem. The proposed method has been illustrated by means of an example problem from a recent contribution to literature. It is seen that the results compare favourably with the existing work.
