Four-bar linkages in ASOMmini (5/5): Isosceles Linkages

In this video series, we will show you the most common variants of the planar four-bar linkage, as well as their characteristics and special features. These variants can be derived from the theorem of Grashof. Grashof’s condition for four-bar linkages states: The shortest link of a four-bar linkage can fully rotate in relation to its

ASOM v7 EXAMPLE Table kinematics, linkage for lifting a table top
ASOMv7

Table kinematics, linkage for lifting a table top

Basic kinematics example of a folding dining table. The middle plate in the table shown here is automatically lifted into the center position by four-bar systems on each of the two sides. The two partial systems are kinematically independent of each other.

ASOM v7 EXAMPLE friction cone
ASOMv7

Kinematics example: friction cone and self-locking

Basic kinematics example for self-locking under force-dependent friction. Friction occurs between a vertical guideway and a fork with a mass in the center of gravity and two contact points on the guideway. This friction is described in each case by a coefficient of friction or a friction value in the two sliding bearings, which, for
