Rear spoiler design with ASOM v7: six-bar linkage with 3 planes (part 2)

Although our six-bar syntheses strictly speaking only allow the specification of 2 plane conditions (plane = point and angle), it is still possible to design six-bar linkages in ASOM v7 to fulfill 3 (or in principle even more) plane conditions. Instead of using scripts to create only numeric displays in expressions, as shown in our

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

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.

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
