P. Nikravesh, AME, U of A Instant Centers of Velocities Introduction Instant Centers of Velocities for a Six-bar Mechanism Part 2: Velocity Analysis In Part 1 of this presentation, we found all the fifteen instant centers for the six- bar mechanism as shown. In this presentation we use some of these centers to perform several velocity analyses. We show the process in separate simply stated problems.

We choose the centers between links 2, 6 and 1 (the ground). These centers are I 1,2, I 2,6, and I 1,6 : We can simply ignore all the other centers. As the matter of fact, we can ignore all the other bodies as well! Now we can perform the analysis. ► ► (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (1) I 1,2 I 2,6 ► I 6,1
