This study is an investigation of the effects of clearances and link flexibility on the stresses in joints of high speed mechanisms. A general large angular motion mathematical model is developed using an efficient mathematical formulation based on displacement functions. Numerical solution of the model reveals that over a wide operating range, link flexibility consistently reduces joint bearing stresses. The possibility of developing simple design procedures for quantitative prediction of joint bearing stresses is discussed.
