The Kutzbach criterion, which is similar to Gruebler’s equation, calculates the mobility. In order to control a mechanism, the number of independent input motions. Mobility Criteria in 2D. • Kutzbach criterion (to find the DOF). • Grübler criterion (to have a single DOF). F=3(n-1)-2j. DOF. # of bodies # of full. The degrees of freedom (DOF) of a rigid body is defined as the number of independent movements it has Figure shows a rigid body in a plane.1 Degree.. .

We can derive the transformation matrix as follows: Suppose the rotational angle of the point about u isthe uktzbach operator will be expressed by where u xu yu z are the othographical projection of the unit axis u on xyand z axes, respectively.

Chebychev–Grübler–Kutzbach criterion

Therefore, a cylindrical pair removes four degrees of freedom from spatial mechanism. Two rigid bodies constrained by a screw pair a motion which is a composition of a translational motion along the axis and a corresponding rotary motion around the axis.

Figure a is an application of the mechanism. We can describe this motion with a translation operator T We used a 3 x 1 homogeneous column matrix to describe a vector representing a single point. A simple open chain consists of n moving links connected end to end by j joints, with one end connected to a kutzhach link.

Similarly, if we create a higher pair Figure cthe degrees of freedom are reduced to 1.

Example 1 Look at the transom above the door in Figure a. That is, you just push or pull rod 3 to operate the window. To see another example, the mechanism in Figure a also criteruon 1 degree of freedom. For example, Figure shows several cases of a rigid body constrained by different kinds of pairs.

In Figure c, a rigid body is constrained by a higher pair. Interesting and useful linkages have been designed that violate the mobility formula by using special geometric features and dimensions to provide more mobility than would by predicted by this formula.

The bar can be translated along the x axis, translated along the y axis, and rotated about its centroid. Two rigid bodies constrained by a revolute pair have an independent rotary kutzbacg around their common axis. Figure shows the three kinds of pairs in planar mechanisms. Figure Denavit-Hartenberg Notation In this figure, z i-1 and z i are the axes of two revolute pairs; i is the included angle of axes x i-1 and crterion i ; d i is the distance between the origin of the coordinate system x i-1 y i-1 z i-1 and the foot of the common perpendicular; a i criteerion the distance between two feet of the common perpendicular; i criterio the included angle of axes z i-1 and z i ; The transformation matrix will be T i-1 i The above transformation matrix can be denoted as T a i kutzbzch, iid i for convenience.


To find the location of P with respect to body 1’s local coordinate system, we know that that the point x 2 y 2 z 2 can be obtained from x 1 y 1 z 1 by combining translation L x1 along the x axis and rotation z about z axis. The degrees of freedom are important when considering a constrained rigid body system that is a mechanism.

Figure Rigid bodies constrained by different kinds of planar pairs In Figure a, a rigid body is constrained by a revolute pair which allows only rotational kutzbac around an axis.

An example of a simple open chain is a serial robot manipulator. For example, two rigid bodies in a space each have local coordinate systems x 1 y 1 z 1 and x 2 y 2 z 2. The opening and closing mechanism is shown in Figure b. Figure A screw pair H-pair The screw pair keeps two axes of two rigid bodies aligned and allows a relative screw motion. The influence of kinematic constraints in the motion of rigid bodies has two intrinsic aspects, which are the geometrical and physical aspects.

A beneficial feature of the planar 3 x 3 translational, rotational, and general displacement matrix operators is that they can easily be programmed on a computer to manipulate a 3 x n matrix of n column vectors representing n points of a rigid body.

Figure shows a rigid body in a plane. Can these operators be applied to the displacements of a system of points such as a rigid body? Views Read Edit View history. It is also possible to construct the linkage system so that all of the bodies move on concentric spheres, forming a spherical linkage.

critefion For example, the general planar transformation for the three points A, B, C on a rigid body can be represented by 4. This composition of this rotational transformation and this translational transformation is a screw motion. If we create a lower pair Figure a,bthe degrees of freedom are reduced to 2. D and E function as a same prismatic pair, so they only count as one lower pair.


The Kutzbach criterionwhich is similar to Gruebler’s equationcalculates the mobility. Adding kinematic constraints between rigid bodies will correspondingly decrease the degrees of freedom of the rigid body system. The two lost degrees of freedom are translational movements along the x and y axes.

In two dimensions, it has one degree of freedom, translating along the x axis. Two rigid bodies connected by this kind of pair will have two independent translational motions in the plane, and a rotary motion around the axis that is perpendicular to the plane. Hence, the freedom of the roller will not be criterin It is called a passive or redundant degree of freedom.

To determine the DOF of this body we must consider how many distinct ways the bar can be criteroon. Figure A prismatic pair P-pair A prismatic pair keeps two axes of two rigid bodies align and allow no relative rotation. We can still write the transformation matrix in the same form as Equation These devices are called overconstrained mechanisms.

Suppose we constrain the two rigid bodies above with a revolute pair as shown in Figure The rotation of the roller does not influence the kurzbach of kuztbach input and output motion of the mechanism. If all criiterion links form a closed loop, the concatenation of all of the transformation matrices will be an identity matrix.

It is less crucial when the system is a structure or when it does not have definite motion. The only way the rigid body can move is to rotate about the fixed point A. It can be used to represent the transformation matrix between links as shown in the Figure Specifically, hinges and sliders each impose five constraints and therefore remove five degrees of freedom.

Joints that connect bodies in this system remove degrees of freedom and reduce mobility. Two rigid bodies that are part of this kind of system will have an independent translational motion along the axis and a relative rotary motion around the axis.
