Keywords:
straight-line linkage, conchoid
Description:
This linkage is a special case of a slider-crank mechanism with a curve tracer point on the connector link. The curve traced out by this point is an approximate straight line and is similar to the conchoid curve of a circle. This closed loop curve has an extremely flat section that for practical purposes can be used for limited straight-line motion [See Abstract of Model S-20]
