Abstract:

This paper presents the results of comparative numerical analysis of single and double–connecting–rod slider–crank linkages on the worksheet of Computer Package Mathcad. On the base of composed virtual models of both linkages the motion of the slider (piston) in these linkages is studied thoroughly. This paper has the links to the video clips, comparing the motions of single and double–connecting–rod slider–crank linkages and visualizing the change of vectors of velocities and accelerations in the pivot, where connects two links of double connecting rod. Concluded, that the motion of the slider (piston) and the force of reaction to the track of slider (wall of a cylinder) in these linkages is quite different.
