Interactive Four-Bar Linkage Kinematic Analysis with Constant Angular Velocity for Link 2

By entering the required parameters below, kinematic analysis can be performed on the fourbar linkage when the input link, link 2, has a constant angular velocity. Plots of the angular positions, velocities, and accelerations of links 3 and 4 for the valid range of motion of the fourbar for links 3 and 4 can be generated.

Unit Type:

Angles: theta1:

Constant omega2 value:

Number of points:

Branch Number:

Output option:

  1. Angular position curves
  2. Angular velocity curves
  3. Angular Acceleration curves
