Paper Title:
An Analysis of Non-Uniform Deformation of a Pantograph for Bellows Applications
  Abstract

In this study, an analytical model is developed to analyze non-uniform deformation of a pantograph. The analytical model is verified by comparing predicted deformations with experimentally measured deformations of a pantograph. The effects of total displacement and gaps on non-uniformity are numerically simulated to provide the physical insight into the deformation mechanism of a pantograph. Design guidelines are suggested to minimize non-uniform deformation of a pantograph, and hence also of an associated bellows.
