Abstract

A degenerate kinematic chain is a movable kinematic chain with rigid subchains. This paper presents an effective algorithm for the detection of degenerate kinematic chains based on the loop-decreasing method. Some theorems are proved, and the detection algorithm is proposed. A computer program is developed for the automatic detection of degenerate kinematic chains. The result of this work is beneficial to the automation of number synthesis of mechanisms.
