Types of Constrained Motion in Kinematic Pairs

Types of Constrained Motion in Kinematic Pairs

In kinematic pairs, constrained motion (or relative motion) can be broadly classified into three types. They are Completely constrained motion Incompletely constrained motion Partially (or successfully) constrained motion 1. Completely constrained motion: Completely constrained motion is a type of constrained motion in which relative motion between the links of a kinematic pair occurs in a [...]

Kinematic Pair – Definition and Types

A kinematic pair is a combination of two kinematic links that have relative motion with respect to each other. When two links (or elements) in a machine are in contact with each other, they form a pair. When the relative motion between these two links is completely or partially constrained, then the links are said [...]

Kinematic Link – Introduction and Types

A machine is a device that is capable of converting the available forms of energy to useful work. Each part of a machine, that undergoes relative motion with respect to some other part, is called kinematic link (or kinematic element). Kinematic links help in the transmission of motion, from one machine part to another. The [...]
