An energy method given by Quinnfor determining the dynamic characteristics of planar mechanisms under the action of displacement-related forces is extended to spatial linkages. These linkages may, in addition, be subjected to time-related forces or to velocity-related damping forces. Recently developed matrix methods are used in the linkage analysis resulting in a method well suited to digital computation.
