A New Class of Six-Bar Mechanisms with Symmetrical Coupler Curves
A new class of six-bar mechanisms with symmetrical coupler-point curves is presented. This class of mechanisms is made up of a four-bar linkage with an additional dyad to form an embedded regular or skew pantograph. Because ...
Multiobjective Optimization of a Leg Mechanism with Various Spring Configurations for Force Reduction
In this paper, the design of a two degree-of-freedom leg mechanism is accomplished by a two-stage optimization process. In the first stage, leg dimensions are optimized with respect to three design objectives: minimize (i) ...
Robustness under Bounded Uncertainty with Phase Information
We consider uncertain linear systems where the uncertainties, in addition to being bounded, also satisfy constraints on their phase. In this context, we define the ﲰhase-sensitive structured singular value (PS-SSV) of a ...
