Abstract

Mechanisms’ instantaneous kinematics is modeled by linear and homogeneous mappings whose coefficient matrices are also meaningful to understand their static behavior through the virtual work principle. The analysis of these models is a mandatory step during design. The superposition principle can be used for building and studying linear and homogeneous models. Here, multi-degree-of-freedom (multi-DOF) spherical mechanisms are considered. Their instantaneous-kinematics model is written by exploiting instantaneouspole-axes’ (IPA) properties and the superposition principle. Then, this general model is analyzed and an exhaustive analytic and geometric technique to identify all their singular configurations is deduced. Eventually, the effectiveness of the deduced technique is shown with two relevant case studies.
