Interactive Five-Bar Geared Linkage Kinematic Analysis

Given the link lengths, theta1, theta2, omega2, alpha2, lambda, phi, and the coupler point vector, the interface below allows the user to find the angular positions, velocities, and accelerations of each link, along with the instantaneous position, velocity, and acceleration of the coupler point P.

Unit Type:
Link lengths (m or ft): r1: r2: r3: r4: r5:
Mode for all angles (beta,theta1,theta2,phi):

Coupler Vector: rp: beta:

Base and input angles:
theta1: theta2:

Angular velocity and acceleration of link2:
omega2: alpha2:

Link5 angle parameters: lambda: phi:

Output option:

  1. Display analysis results
  2. Display fivebar position -- Branch Number:
