A Synthesis and Optimal Method for Straight Line Mechanism with Burmester Points
When a Burmester point coincides with the Ball point at the inflection circle pole, given a fixed joint and the point, which is on the expecting straight-line and direction can synthesize an infinite number of mechanisms with coupler curve having a five-point contacts with its tangent, namely, Burmester point. Any displacement is corresponding to three four-bar straight-line linkages with the synthesis formulations given. The property charts, which include the bar ratio, the sum of bars, the relative straight-line length, mechanism types, and so on, are drawn by developing a mechanism software based on vc++6.0 with the solution region method. So the users can find out the involved linkages information intuitively, and also the aimlessness in choosing optimal mechanisms is avoided effectively.
