Abstract

This study introduces a simulation approach to analyze the dynamics of planar mechanisms using the computer simulation software EASY5. The analysis is based on the equations of motion of the mechanism linkages. Elasticity in the joints and linkages as well as the looseness and friction were taken into consideration. The chosen methodology allows the modeling of a variety of possible mechanisms.
