Part of the Solid Mechanics and its Applications book series (SMIA, volume 26)


This chapter is devoted to the study of cam mechanisms with four links. The study of three-link mechanisms with constant pressure angle is included because these mechanisms are synthesized within our unified framework with the aid of an auxiliary roller, which thus leads to a four-link mechanism.
