Abstract

Hypocyclic mechanisms are the basic building blocks in the design of many widely used mechanical systems such as gear differentials, computing devices and other useful instruments. This paper presents a unique variation to the conventional hypocyclic system configuration in that the rotating elements are spring constrained instead of rigid arm constrained. A mathematical model was develop to simulate the operational characteristics of the mechanism. The model was coded in Fortran IV computer language and a simulation survey was conducted for a set of geometrical and system constraints. The results of this survey indicate that the mathematical model could be a useful tool in the parametric study and possible design and application of a spring constrained hypocyclic roller mechanism.
