Regular Cyclic Systems with Ring and Branched-Ring Structure
In machines for the textile, printing, light, and a number of other industries, manufacturing operations are carried out by the executive members of the increased extension. In such cases, to provide the required stiffness of the system and to avoid the high level of vibration activity, the executive body is driven by multiple duplicated cyclic mechanisms. This vibatory system forms the closed contours and acquires the so-called ring structure, which is associated with a number of specific features. This chapter contains the analysis of regular torsional cyclic systems with ring and branched-ring structure.
