Gruebler’s Equation. Degrees of freedom for planar linkages joined with common joints can be calculated through Gruebler’s equation. Grubler & Kutzbach Equations. Lower pairs (first order joints) or full-joints (counts as J = 1 in. Gruebler’s Equation) have one degree of freedom (only one motion. Reference Books: ▫ John J. Uicker, Gordon R. Pennock, Joseph E.

Ezy Mechanic Machine components and linkages design made easy. We can use Gruebler’s equation to calculate the number of degrees of freedom of the mechanism as follows.

Chapter 4. Basic Kinematics of Constrained Rigid Bodies

The four-bar linkage as shown in the picture is the example of the mechanism with 1 DOF. It has 4 links 3 bars with 1 ground link and 4 revolute joints which the degree of freedom F can be calculated as follows. Another example of 1 DOF mechanism is the slider-crank mechanism where it has the following number of links and joints. It could be a motor, an air cylinder, etc.

If we change the slider joint of the slider-crank mechanism to the fixed pin joint, the mechanism will be locked since it grhebler 0 DOF which is considered as a structure.


The calculation using Gruebler’s equation is as follows.

Gruebler’s Equation

If one of the pin joint of the 4-bar linkage changes to the slider joint, it will increase both the number of links and number of lower pairs. This makes the mechanism unconstrained because it has 2 DOF and required 2 actuators to control the position of the mechanism. Linkages Email This BlogThis! Share to Twitter Share to Facebook.
