Understanding the dynamic behavior of mechanisms, which is essential to their high-speed applications, demands a clear knowledge of the acceleration of the output relative to input. Such knowledge can be ascertained by means of harmonic analysis of the motion of mechanisms. This paper presents a harmonic analysis of a general spherical four-bar mechanism with application to Hooke’s joint, wobble-plate mechanism, and the spherical crank drive.
