    • Abstract


      The problem of motion transformation from a complete rotation into an oscillatory motion is seen in many applications, and the simplest solution to this problem is possible with the design of a crank–rocker mechanism. In this study the design of the crank–rocker mechanism in the analytical method, based on a closedform solution, has been achieved according to several requirements that may arise by the designers for specific design cases, considering all the effective design parameters of the crank–rocker mechanism. Besides, numerical examples are presented with the help of a computer program developed using the obtained design equations
