Planar Slider-Crank Mechanism

As shown in the figure, the crank has a mass m1 (and length L1), while the connecting rod has a mass m2 (and length L2). Gravity in the -Y direction is included, as is the force F acting on the piston. The equations will be generated in the 3 joint coordinates [θ, ß, s]. Since the system has only 1 degree of freedom, 2 algebraic constraint equations will be generated for these 3 coordinates, in addition to the 3 dynamic equations.

This model is ideal for use in the engineering classroom to teach fundamental concepts.
