A dual dynamic equation, based on dual vectors and screw calculus, is formulated here to provide a concise analytical tool for the study of the dynamics of rigid members in any complex mechanical system. In this paper the equation is applied to inertia force analysis of an RCCC mechanism of general proportions; bearing reactions and inertia torque are obtained in closed form dual-number expressions. Such analytical expressions are more susceptible for geometric interpretation and well adapted for digital computation.
