GALEANO URUENA, Carlos Humberto; DUQUE DAZA, Carlos Alberto  and  GARZON ALVARADO, Diego Alexander. Application of sizing design optimization to position and velocity synthesis in four bar linkage. Antioquia [online]. 2009, n.47, pp.129-144. ISSN 0120-6230.

In this work, we have developed and solved the synthesis of position and velocity for four bar mechanisms by means of dimensional and optimal algorithms of nonlinear optimization (sequential quadratic programming SQP). The optimization problem was defined according to the synthesis needed: it can be trajectory, function or velocity generation. The velocity can be defined with an explicit or implicit trajectory. The optimization problem and the search algorithm used in this work allow reaching the best configuration by way of a simple scheme and few iterations. Alternatively, the development of a mix synthesis of position and velocity allows us validate the algorithm efficiency.

Keywords : Four bar linkage; optimum design; synthesis; sequential quadratic programming.
