Kinematic Analysis Method: Determining Velocity and Acceleration 650437

This paper discusses the use of vector algebra to obtain the motion of elements of linkages falling within the scope of the KAM system. Both the mathematical and the programming techniques used to obtain the velocities and accelerations are discussed in detail. The procedure used results in a set of linear equations and thus provides an exact solution.
