Dynamic balancing of planar mechanisms using toric geometry

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Gosselin, Clément M.; Moore, Brian; Schicho, Josef;

In this paper, a new method to determine the complete set of dynamically balanced planar four-bar mechanims is presented. Using complex variables to model the kinematics of the mechanism, the dynamic balancing constraints are written as algebraic equations over complex ... View more
