Kinematical Analysis of the Articulated Quadrilateral Mechanism Using the Principle of Virtulal Mechanical Work

Open access


The paper presents a numerical method of kinematical analysis of the articulated quadrilateral mechanism, using the principle of virtual mechanical work for establishing the relations of connection between the kinematical parameters describing the movement of its elements.
