Four bar linkages Four Bar Linkages in Two Dimensions

A link has fixed length and is joined to other links and also possibly to a fixed point. The relative velocity of end B regard to A is given by VBA = r = BA k( i x + j y) = BA ( i y + j x ) Vector r = i x + j y in two dimensions 1 A x with j y vBA B = x+jy BA i

Note AB is the counter clockwise direction angular velocity. The relative velocity is always perpendicular to the line joining the linkage ends, but Equation 1 can be seen by inspection. y Or note |VBA| = AB r . The i component is |VBA| sin = |VBA| r = AB y . This we have in Equation 1. The j component arises in a similar way. The relative acceleration has two components . One component is centripetal and the other azimuthal or, one might say, circumferential. There is no Coriolis acceleration since the "radius" or barlink length is constant. The centripetal acceleration of B w. r. t. A aBArad = ( r) = BA2(i x + j y) The azimuthal acceleration aABazim = = BA( i y +j x) aBA = aBArad + aABazim = BA 2(i x + j y) + BA ( i y + j x) = i ( BA2x BA y ) + j ( BA2 y + BA x ) 3 A 2 aBAazim = BA2 k(ix+jy) = BA2 (-iy+jx) j y aBArad = - BA2 (ix+jy) B = ix+jy BA, angular acceleration BA, angular velocity x i 0 0 Formally = k and r = x y 0 i j k

OA is rotating at constant angular velocity o counterclockwise. Find all velocities and accelerations. Velocities Take AO. In eq. 1 x 60, y 80 The velocity of A w. r. t. O is vAO = o( i 80 +j(60) ) = o(i80 + j60) Similarly vBA = BA ( i 100 + j 240 ) 4 5

where BA is the ( at present unknown) counterclockwise angular velocity of BA And vCB = CB[ i(180) + j 0 )] = CB i180 6

where CB is the ( at present unknown) counterclockwise angular velocity of CB. Thus we can express the velocity of C which is zero as 0 = vCO = vAO + vBA + vCB = o(i80 + j60) + BA ( -i100 + j 240 ) + CB i180 Compare j components 0 = o60 + BA 240 BA = 4o 7

Using the formulae: First Then using eqq. 2 & 3

aAO = o2( i 60 + j 80)

aBA = BA2 ( i 240+j100) + BA ( i 100+j 240) and aBC = BA2(ix + jy) + BA( iy + jx )

o Note that we have BA = 4 ; BA is yet to be determined. And aCB = CB2(j180) + CB [ 0 (- i180)] = i180 CB+ j180 CB2 Thus the acceleration of C , which is zero is given by 0 = aCO = aAO + aBA + aCB = o2( i60 j 80) BA2 ( i240+j100) + BA ( i100 + j 240) + j180 CB2 + i180 CB Compare j coefficients: 0 = 80 o2 100BA2 + 240BA + 180 CB2 whence 14 13

From the angular accelerations the linear accelerations follow fairly easily. To recap the data: o BA = 4 7 ; CB = 12o

The order of steps is shown by roman numerals on the diagram. (i) We may put in aA straight off and enter the 80 dimension gaA( setting o = 1)

x The slider B moves only horizontally. It is as if B were on the end on an infinitely long rod whose fixed end was at . Velocities. vA = o( i c sin + j c cos) = o c ( i sin + j cos ) vBA = BA ( i r (sin) + j r cos ) = BA r ( i sin+ j cos) 1 2

Thus vB = vA + vBA = i( c sin + r sin) + j ( o c cos + AB r sin) 3 Since the vertical or j component of vB = 0 we get c cos BA = o r cos and c sin Note tan = xc cos so vB = i o c( sin cos tan) vB = i o c = i o x sin + c sin cos c sin cos x c cos c x sin x c cos 6 4 5

We could have arrived at the last expression by using the cosine rule and the geometry of the connections: r2 = c2 + x2 2 c x cos Take the derivative w. r. t. time: or since o = The velocity diagram is shown below.

o co c osin( + ) vB sin(+) = cos ; vb = cos 9

which agrees with equation 5 above. Note that there are various other ways of approaching this analysis: look carefully at the problem. For example we could use the sine rule on the original geometry sin sin c = r Take the derivative w. r. t. : so r : sin = c sin

c cos ' cos ' cos ' ' = = r ; r cos c

c cos ' c cos ' = AB = r cos = o r cos : which is eq. 4

Acceleration A 0 c r

j i

x We suppose that the crank OA is going at constant speed so OA = 0 aA = o2( i c cos + j c sin) = o2c ( i cos + j sin) And aBA = BA2( i r cos j r sin) + BA( i (r sin) + j r cos) = BA2 r ( i cos + j sin) + BA r ( i sin + j cos) and aB = aA + aBA = i( o2c cos BA2 r cos+ BA r sin) + j ( o2c sin+ BA2 r sin + BA r cos) Since B moves only horizontally the j component of acceleration is zero and 0 = o2c sin+ BA2 r sin + BA r cos so Since 1 BA = r cos ( o2c sin BA2 r sin) BA = o c cos r cos

o2 c BA = 2 3 ( r sin cos2 c sin cos2) r cos and aB = o2 c r cos2 r (sin tan cos) c cos3

This can hardly be counted as a simple expression. For particular cases the solutions may be simpler. In any event the complexity of the formula suggests either to use a computer or to insert numerical values early in the analysis.
