Static and Dynamic Balancing of Robots

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeEntry for encyclopedia/dictionaryScientific


In general, two kinds of forces are needed to generate motion in a mechanism. To the first type belong the external forces or moments that do work and drive the mechanism. The second type relates to forces that (ideally) do not do work but are required to keep the mechanism in place, the so-called reaction or shaking forces and moments. This chapter is concerned with systems in which the external forces or moments, or the reaction forces or moments, or all of these, are zero, for any motion of the mechanism.
