The specific contribution made by this work in the area of geared five-bar path generation is the formulation of a non-linear optimization problem that includes elastic deflection, static torque and buckling constraints. Using this model, geared five-bar path generators are also synthesized with respect to static torque, deflection constraints and buckling constraints for a given rigid-body load.

Keywords: buckling; deflection; geared five-bar mechanism; path generation; torque
