Interactive Fourbar-Slider Linkage Animation

To animate the fourbar-slider linkage below on your screen, you need to install Ch Mechanism Toolkit in your local machine.

Given the link lengths, theta1, theta2, omega2, alpha2, psi, and the coupler point vector, the interface below allows the user to find r7, the linear velocity and acceleration of the slider, and the instantaneous position, velocity, and acceleration of the coupler point P.

Unit Type:
Link lengths (ft or m):
r1: r2: r3: r4: r5: r6:

Mode for all angles (beta,theta1,theta2,psi):
Coupler Vector: rp: beta:

Base angle:

Included angle between links 4,5:

Number of points:

Branch Number:
