Some methods have been investigated both theoretically and experimentally to reduce the fluctuating torques in the driving shafts caused by the inertia forces in the crank-and-rocker mechanisms; the spatial four-bar mechanism having two revolute and two spheric pairs is cited as an example. The fluctuating torque has been actually reduced to 1/20–1/3 .
