Straight Line Motion and Universal Coupling

  • J. S. Rao
Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS, volume 18)


Every link in a mechanism performs a repeated motion. Therefore any point on these links also performs a repeated motion passing through a specified curve called a coupler curve. In this chapter we will study special cases where the path traced is a straight line or special cases when two inclined shafts are connected through a universal coupling.
