## How is grashof condition calculated?

The Grashof condition compares s+l to g+h where s is the shortest length, l is the longest and g, h are the other two lengths. If s+lg+h then no bars will rotate through 360°.

**What is the condition involved in grashof law?**

1. What is the condition involved in Grashof’s law? Explanation: According to Grashof’s law, in a four bar mechanism, the sum of the lengths of the shortest and the longest link should be less than or equal to the sum of the lengths of two remaining links for continuous relative motion between them. Therefore, s+l≤p+q.

**What is a grashof link?**

A Grashof linkage is a planar four-bar linkage with. s + l < p + q. where. s = length of the shortest link. l = length of longest link.

### What is a non grashof mechanism?

A non-Grashof linkage is a planar four-bar linkage with. s + l > p + q. s = length of the shortest link. l = length of longest link. p and q are the lengths of the two remaining links.

**What is the significance of grashof law?**

Grashof’s Law states that for a four-bar linkage system, if the sum of length of shortest and longest of a planar quadrilateral linkage is less than or equal to the sum of the remaining two links , then the shortest link can rotate freely with respect to neighbouring link.

**Which link should be grounded to get double crank?**

In double crank mechanism, the shortest link which is S is fixed or grounded. In this mechanism, both the links pivoted to the fixed link can rotate 360 degrees. In double rocker mechanism, the link opposite to shortest link is fixed or grounded.

#### What is crank rocker mechanism?

The crank–rocker mechanism is, basically, a four-bar mechanism in which the output link oscillates when the input link completely rotates, consistent with Grashof’s Law. When the input link, MA = q, is completely rotating, the output link, QB = u, oscillates between the limit positions QB1 and QB2.

**What is triple rocker mechanism?**

In Triple rocker mechanism, one link is fixed while the other three oscillates. It is a non grashof linkage for which the sum of the lengths of the shortest link and the longest link is greater than the sum of the lengths of the other two links.

**Where is double slider crank mechanism?**

This type of inversion is used to draw ellipse. It is also known as Trammel of Archimedes. It can be used to draw ellipse of different sizes. In this inversion Link 1 i.e the frame which is is fixed.

## Which is the necessary condition to satisfy Grashof’s law?

The necessary condition to satisfy Grashof’s Law is : S + L ≤ P + Q This condition is divided into two cases :-1) S + L < P + Q 2) S + L = P + Q

**How does Grashof’s law apply to a four bar chain?**

Grashof’s Law states that for a four-bar linkage system, if the sum of length of shortest and longest of a planar quadrilateral linkage is less than or equal to the sum of the remaining two links , then the shortest link can rotate freely with respect to neighbouring link. In a four bar chain there are four turning pairs and no sliding pairs.

**When do the joints break in Grashof criterion?**

If P+Q < L+S, (or L+S > P+Q) then the joints would break. Overlapping position – bottom image – gives two more inequalities, and can exist when: If Q were to increase in length to become equal to the inequality, P rotates clockwise to become horizontal, and if greater, it would break the mechanism.

### When was the Grashof rule first used in kinematics?

This is the Grashof Criterion (also called the Grashof Rule, or even the Grashof Classification) by Franz Grashof in 1883. (L + S) = (P + Q) : then it is a special condition – see below – Parallelogram and Kite.
