Design of spatial four-bar mechanisms in which the skew crank axes are at right angles is investigated. Using an algebraic approach, the lengths of the moving links are expressed as functions of a single parameter. Transmission optimization of right-angled four-bar mechanisms can then be determined from the solution of a single parameter constrained optimization problem. When the motion is symmetric, mechanism proportions which yield constant force transmission characteristics can be obtained.


On the synthesis of a geared four-bar mechanism
PARLAKTAŞ, VOLKAN; Söylemez, Eres; TANIK, ENGİN (Elsevier BV, 2010-08-01)
This paper presents an analysis and synthesis method for a certain type of geared four-bar mechanism (GFBM) for which the input and output shafts are collinear. A novel analysis method is devised, expressions for the transmission angle are derived and charts are prepared for the design of such mechanisms. It is observed that the GFBM considered is inherently a quick-return mechanism. Large time ratios can be obtained with acceptable force transmission characteristics. During the working stroke, approximatel...
Analysis and design of a compliant variable stroke mechanism
TANIK, ENGİN; Söylemez, Eres (Elsevier BV, 2010-10-01)
In this paper, analysis and design of an underactuated compliant variable stroke mechanism are presented by employing its pseudo-rigid-body model (PRBM). During the design two cases are considered: prescribed output loading and constant input torque. It is shown that this mechanism is suitable where variable stroke is required corresponding to variable output loading. It is also observed that this mechanism is capable of providing nearly constant force over a wide range of input. The analysis and design app...
Edge cracks in a transversely isotropic hollow cylinder
Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat (Elsevier BV, 2005-09-01)
The analytical solution for the linear elastic, axisymmetric problem of inner and outer edge cracks in a transversely isotropic infinitely long hollow cylinder is considered. The z = 0 plane on which the crack lies is a plane of symmetry. The loading is uniform crack surface pressure. The mixed boundary value problem is reduced to a singular integral equation where the unknown is the derivative of the crack surface displacement. An asymptotic analysis is done to derive the generalized Cauchy kernel associat...
Boundary element solution of unsteady magnetohydrodynamic duct flow with differential quadrature time integration scheme
Bozkaya, Canan; Tezer, Münevver (Wiley, 2006-06-20)
A numerical scheme which is a combination of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) and the differential quadrature method (DQM), is proposed for the solution of unsteady magnetohydro-dynamic (MHD) flow problem in a rectangular duct with insulating walls. The coupled MHD equations in velocity and induced magnetic field are transformed first into the decoupled time-dependent convection-diffusion-type equations. These equations are solved by using DRBEM which treats the time and the space deriva...

A practical and powerful technique for the discrete representation of reinforcement in finite element analysis of prestressed and reinforced concrete structures is presented. Isoparametric quadratic and cubic finite elements with movable nodes are developed utilizing a correction technique for mapping distortion. Reinforcing bars and/or prestressing tendons are modeled independently of the concrete mesh. Perfect or no bond as well as any bond-slip model can easily be represented. The procedure is succes...
