Relationship between Kinematics Characteristics and Link Lengths in Crank-Rocker Linkages
According to the relationships of link lengths in crank-rocker linkages, the effective areas of link lengths for type I, type II and type III of the linkages were analyzed firstly. The relationship between the minimum transmission angles, extreme position angles and the link lengths were derived theoretically and drawn visually as variation trend maps and some conclusions are summarized. The conclusions can be used as guidance for optimal synthesis of crank-rocker linkages.
