Algorithms for computational mechanism synthesis and analysis
This paper proposes algorithms for mechanism synthesis and analysis, including Rotation, Center, Connection, Numeric Differentiation, Animation and Index. These algorithms are used to transfer behaviors into structures, and to transfer structures into kinematic and dynamic behaviors of the structures. The algorithms are valid for the synthesis and analysis of different mechnisms. These algorithms can be used iteratively to produce mechanisms that can fulfill simple and complex motions. The paper contributes simple algorithms for the design and analysis of different mechanisms.
