Technical Paper


The article reviews the vector method of solving one of the important problems of the dynamic analysis of planar linkages—the kinetostatic analysis, which is to determine the reactions in kinematic pairs and to balance the moment (force) on the driving medium with a given law of motion of the mechanism. This problem is of great practical value when choosing the electric motor and calculating bearings in kinematic pairs. Proposed quality criteria for an optimal kinematic synthesis of linkage mechanism depend only on the geometrical dimensions and are independent of the forces and moments applied to the linkages.
