The geared five-bar linkage is the foundation for a function generation problem meeting specifications for 5 multiply separated positions and containing 4 free design parameters. The four-bar linkage is shown to be a member of this class of mechanisms. Design examples of rarely treated functions are given with the quality of the generated approximation. Suggestions are made in terms of the 4 design parameters to assist the designer in obtaining good results.
