The structural analysis of space linkages with two general constraints has been conducted by using Franke’s condensed notation. Linkages with mobility one and mobility two with up to three loops are considered. Censuses of chains with eight, nine, eleven and twelve links and a case study describing a practical application of these chains are presented.
