Plane Mechanism

Plane Mechanism

 

a mechanism such that all points of its links describe trajectories that lie in parallel planes. Plane mechanisms include gear and friction mechanisms for the transmission of rotation between parallel shafts and also plane mechanisms with rotating and sliding pairs.

The camera features a half-meter, or 20-inch, diameter primary mirror and a focal plane mechanism that can acquire up to a 3.6 megapixel image in about 11 seconds.
The kinematic chain A [union] 2 [union] B [union] 3 [union] C forms the TGM plane mechanism. The kinematic chain 0 [union] Q [union] 1 forms the TGM pivot mechanism.
The pivoting mechanism assures the variation of the y angles according to the matrix (2), during the transition of the [sup.A]C vector from the plane mechanisms reference system to the TGM fixed reference system.
The neural model simulates the movement on different trajectories of the plane mechanism described at the beginning well enough;
Improvement of existing consumer industry technological equipment and the design of new machines is connected with the perfection of methods of analysis of structural groups of links of plane mechanisms, out of which the latter are composed.
The tasks of the kinematic research of complex plane mechanisms remain relevant because in each particular case of the upper class mechanism research it is necessary to select and execute an original sequence of actions, which is caused by the simultaneous application of several methods of kinematic analysis, while a general method for studying the variety of such complex mechanisms of the fourth and higher classes does not exist at the present moment.
The mechanism of ACL injury identified in this study as occurring most frequently is also identified in another published review that found that most ACL injuries do not occur solely via sagittal, frontal or transverse plane mechanisms. [13] Collectively, the results showed that ACL injuries are more likely to occur during multi-planar rather than single-planar mechanisms of injury.
The mobility [M.sub.b] of each from those two plane mechanisms is calculated with the Dobrovolski formula:
