J. Eng. Ind 93(1), 268-272 (Feb 01, 1971) (5 pages) doi:10.1115/1.3427885 History: Received July 27, 1970; Online July 15, 2010


An improved mathematical model of a mechanism is described whereby the elastic deformations of its links are determined. A method of solving for these deflections is presented along with examples of the elastic behavior of both plane and space mechanisms. Finally, the dynamic forces in a mechanism are discussed and one example given.
