A straight line motion is a common application in engineering design and manufacture. The Peaucellier mechanism generates exact straight lines, meeting .

Peaucellier mechanism is one of the exact straight line motion mechanism working on lower pair linkages implying eight links rhomboidal system in such a way.

Carl A. Nelson, Christian A. DETC, pp. Although the traced output is straight, the relation between input rotation angle and output position along the traced line is nonlinear. The purpose of this study is to investigate the composite motion of stacked Peaucellier straight-line mechanisms. After stacking, the original straight-line output transforms into a complex curve whose shape is dependent on the motion of all of the component mechanisms, their geometric parameters, and how the component Peaucellier cells are interconnected. MATLAB software was used to generate output curves considering different stacking configurations and mechanism sizes. MATLAB was also used to analyze the final data and identify correlations between the mechanism link sizes, stacking configurations, and relative output curves. Based on a polynomial fitting technique, resultant output of the stacked mechanisms was generally found to be of 6th order except when purposefully constrained. This is a first attempt to characterize kinematic trace curves for this type of stacked straight-line linkage system.

The length of the link 2 is equal to the distance between points O2 and O4.

By the constraints of the geometry point A moves in a circular path and as the point A moves in a circle point P traverses an exact straight line path normal to the line joining O2 and O4. From the construction of the Peaucellier linkage it is clear that this is a much more complex mechanism than the mechanisms generating approximate straight lines, which were simple four bar linkages.

This mechanism has eight members and six joints.

Scott-Russell Exact Straight Line Mechanism The complexity of the mechanisms to generate exact straight lines can be reduced by introduction of one or more slider crank linkages.

It is possible to generate an exact straight line using the slider crank mechanism but the range of motion is limited.

One such example is Scott-Russell Mechanism as shown in the figure. Based on the geometry of the linkage the output motion is a simple sine function of the drive link or a simple harmonic motion.

It is evident from the figure that this mechanism is made up of isosceles triangles, AB, AC and AO2 are of equal lengths. These mechanisms are governed by Kinematics — the study of geometry and motion.

Since the purpose of this analysis is to optimize the maximum line length change in y in relation to After the above observations were obtained, the inferred the linkages, a can be held at 1 while varying the other two optimal condition based on the hypothesis that maximum linkage lengths. In fact, the stroke was consistently greater in the third vertical height at a specific angle at all, Figure 6. It was then noted that a direct evaluation of the stroke function, given by Eq.

Although specifics are 2 indiscernible, it is clear that there is a definite beginning, end, 1 0 and maximum to the relationship between b and c; the 0 50 mechanism can be optimized with proper constraints.

Although maximum stroke for a particular c-value, along with the a larger a-value allows a much greater range of b- and c- corresponding b-value as shown in Figure 9.

Note the maximum stroke does not vary significantly. Velocity similarity between the graphs.

And the linear correlations analysis will now be employed to create the additional between the maximum stroke Smax and the c values can also be constraints necessary for the design of this mechanism. In this section, a method is developed to facilitate the Because different values of a merely change x, for any given a dimension synthesis of the Peaucellier mechanism based on value the influence of b and c variables are essentially practical functional specifications, such as stroke, motion interchangeable with respect to Smax.

Therefore, a constant speed is highly desirable. Max Stroke vary c Although the Peaucellier mechanism, along with most other b-value at max straight-line mechanisms, has an output stroke of continuously changing velocity, it is possible to create a near constant range 50 of velocities [3].

The velocity at a specific location can be 0 derived by differentiating the y-value function using either 0 20 40 60 80 method, with the alternate being used as verification. It is exactly variation. That is, Equation 15 can then be used to 15 calculate b2-c2 as 1.

Figure 10 displays the plot and data table of this equation. This makes sense because can be found. Although the original analysis proved that the mechanism could not be physically connected if this was larger b and c values cause a proliferation of the stroke length, not true. The feasible design solutions lie on the hyperbola this application is not practical with the correspondingly above the linear assembly constraint line.

One way to provide such 0. Using equations 8 and 10 for y-value at a Figure Example case 1 solution specific angle and total stroke respectively, the required maximum stroke is related to the working stroke and workable As can be seen above, b and c would need to be much greater angle by: than a at.

Steps that can be taken to avoid this disparity include reducing the 16 difference between the ground link a and the working stroke and increasing the acceptable velocity variation. Based on Case 2.

With a Z ratio of 0. Norton, Design of Machinery, 4th ed. Boston: The solution lines are plotted in Figure It can be seen that McGraw Hill, , pp. And in this case the. Although the original goal was to create the maximum stroke possible, it has resulted that this is not a practical application at all with the exponentially increasing velocities at the limits of motion.

Velocity analysis proved to be much more helpful in determining a useful optimization and description of the mechanism that will hopefully contribute to industrial use of the mechanism. The standard and alternate configurations have been found to have similar, if not identical, patterns of movement.

More analysis could be done to determine potential benefits or drawbacks of using one configuration versus the other beyond the scope of position and velocity analysis, such as transmission angle and total workspace. These attributes, along with net weight and relationship between ground link and x-value, could also be used as possible goals and design specifications for appropriate sizing of this special straight line mechanism.
