The Foundation for CADSPAM: Computer Aided Design of SPAtial Mechanisms
MetadataShow full item record
Unlike precision point synthesis methods that allow only a limited number of positions to be specified, optimization will be employed to synthesize a wide variety of mechanisms . This approach will allow the user to interactively monitor and control objectives and constraints, which will yield practical solutions to realistic mechanism design problems.
The creation of this program will provide practicing engineers with the capacity to design many previously intractable spatial mechanisms.
