Behaviour of the contact trace in a cam-follower system when the displacement law has been designed using bézier curves
Acevedo Peñaloza, Carlos Humberto | 2018-11-06
The study shows the distribution of the contact trace in a cam - follower
mechanism in which the Bézier curves of degrees 5, 7 and 9 have been used for
the design of displacement of the follower. The equations that describe the
movement of the follower and its derivatives are presented, the expressions are
formulated for the contact trace, the force exerted on the mechanical assembly are
formulated and the results obtained are presented in a model mechanism.
