Abstract

An algorithm of generalized kinematic chains and its computer program are developed in this paper. By this program, users can give the number of links and joints and then the link assortments and contracted link assortments can be calculated. The synthesis of multiple link adjacency matrix (MLAM) and the cut-link diagnosis are proposed to produce effectively the generalized kinematic chains. The algorithm can automatically determine the feature of a chain, which is connected, closed, non-isomorphism, without any cut-link (or cut-joint), and with simple joint only. Then, it can be called a generalized kinematic chain. Finally, various given number of links and joints, the nice looking atlas of generalized kinematic chains can also be generated. The developed computer program could help designers to be able to study and compare different devices in a very basic way. Keywords: Generalized kinematic chains, Multiple link adjacency matrix, Cut-link.
