This paper deals with dynamic analysis of three methods for the slider in mechanisms. Three methods are introduced under three conditions (the influence of friction force is considered, the slider’s center of mass is not coincide with the hinge point, the slider and its guide have rotation motion). The dynamic analyses of the crank slider mechanism and the flying shear mechanism are given as examples by a developed software based on Visual C++ environment, and application scope of the three methods is concluded at the end of the paper. These results are useful for analyzing and designing mechanisms with sliders, such as choosing suitable slider materials or actuators.
