Kinematic chain

Kinematic chain Kinematic chain is defined as the combination of kinematic pairs in which each links forms a part of two kinematic pairs and the relative motion between the links is either completely constrained or successfully constrained. Examples: slider-crank mechanism For a kinematic chain N = 2 P – 4 = 2 (j + 2) … Read more

KINEMATIC CHAIN: DEGREE OF FREEDOM IN A MECHANISM

KINEMATIC CHAIN a) Kinematic chain: A kinematic chain is an assembly of links which are interconnected through joints or pairs, in which the relative motions between the links is possible and the motion of each link relative to the other is definite. b) Non-kinematic chain: In case the motion of a link results in indefinite … Read more
