Elisha Sacks, Leo Joskowicz, "The Configuration Space Method for Kinematic Design of Mechanisms"
2010 | ISBN: 0262013894 | 200 pages | PDF | 4,8 MB
This book presents the configuration space method for computer-aided design of mechanisms with changing part contacts. Configuration space is a complete and compact geometric representation of part motions and part interactions that supports the core mechanism design tasks of analysis, synthesis, and tolerancing. It is the first general algorithmic treatment of the kinematics of higher pairs with changing contacts. It will help designers detect and correct design flaws and unexpected kinematic behaviors, as demonstrated in the book's four case studies taken from industry.
