The theory developed in Part 1 has been applied to the determination of the dynamic response of three typical types of intermittent-motion mechanisms, namely, Geneva mechanisms, ratchets, and escapements. Insight into the behavior of such mechanisms can be obtained by studying the characteristics of the mathematical model and by numerical experiments. The results, whenever possible, are illustrated by computer-plotted graphs. A comparative study with some limited current investigations on the same subject is provided.
