1
New entity in statics – “Face Force” Developing new engineering concept through graph representations

2
Kinematical Linkage Consider a kinematical linkage and its graph representation

3
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure Now, consider a static structure and its graph representation

4
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure There exist a mathematical relation between the representations of the two systems

5
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure Therefore there is the duality relation between the represented engineering systems

6
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure The relative velocity of each link of the linkage is equal to the internal force in the corresponding rod of the structure

7
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure The equilibrium of forces in the structure is thus equivalent to compatibility of relative velocities in the linkage

8
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure In classical machine theory there is no known variable corresponding to the absolute velocity of a joint in the linkage ?

9
Kinematical Linkage Static Structure ? In search for this variable in statical structures we shall make a detour to … the works of Maxwell

10
Maxwell Diagram points in the diagram are associated with the faces of the structure II VI III V I IV O

11
Maxwell Diagram lines in the diagram are associated with the rods of the structure II VI III V I IV O

12
Duality In our approach we proved that the diagram can be considered as velocity diagram of a linkage II III IV O V I VI O1O1 O2O2 O3O3 O4O4

13
Duality In our approach we proved that the diagram can be considered as velocity diagram of a linkage

14

15
Therefore Maxwell diagram describes both the forces in the structure and the velocities in the mechanism II VI III V I IV O

16
The length of the segment in the diagram corresponds to the force in the rod of the structure II VI III V I IV O

17
Or to the relative linear velocity of the link in the dual mechanism II VI III V I IV O

18
The coordinates of the points in the diagram correspond to the absolute velocities of mechanism joints II VI III V I IV O

19
But there is no known variable to which it corresponds in the structure. II VI III V I IV O

20
Face force – a multidimensional generalization of mesh currents

21
It was proved that face forces manifest some properties of electric potentials.
