The Equivalence between Static (rigid) and Kinematic (flexible, mobile) Systems through the Graph Theoretic Duality

Dr. Offer ShaiTel-Aviv University

- The graphs representing static systems (trusses, isostatic frameworks) and kinematic systems (linkages, flexible, mobile systems, mechanisms).
- Derivation of the duality between trusses (isostatic frameworks) and linkages (mechanisms, flexible systems).
- Revealing concepts in statics through the duality relation : equimomental line dual to instant center; face force dual to absolute linear velocity.
- Discrete-continuous description of linkages and trusses (isostatic frameworks).
- The relation between the cross-section test and valid equimomental lines.
- The relation between the duality introduced in this talk and reciprocity.
- Conjectures – Assur graphs (a type of Laman graph that is minimal rigid with respect to vertices).
Another decomposition (construction) of Laman Graphs.

Realization: strict self-stress and ALL the inner joints have infinitesimal flex.

Deterministic algorithm for constructing it?

Kinematic linkage is a planar system built of rigid links interconnected through revolute joints.

The variables of interest in linkage analysis are: joint absolute linear velocity, link relative linear velocity, link angular velocity (the rate of the angle position change)

The linkage has one degree of freedom, namely rotation of one of the links (referred as a driving link) uniquely determines the velocities of all the links in the mechanism.

Truss is built of rigid bars and supports (fixed and mobile) connected through pinned joints. External forces can applied upon the truss through some of the pinned joints thus inducing internal forces and reactions in the truss bars and supports.

The trusses considered here are statically determinate, namely the values of the externally applied forces uniquely determine the internal forces and the reactions of the truss.

- Proposition For every an isostatic framework with external forces there exist a dual linkage, L, with given driving links, satisfying:
- Link in L corresponds a truss element (rod, external force, reaction) of T, and vice versa.
Links and bars are perpendicular.

- Relative velocity of each link in L == force acting in the
corresponding element in T.

PROOF

- Let T be a truss (isostatic framework) and GF its graph, thus:
- Suppose that its dual graph is G - namely
- Let us construct a mechanism such that the dual link is perpendicular to the corresponding bar in the truss, thus:
- The magnitude of the forces in the truss and the magnitudes of the relative velocities in the dual linkage are identical.

The links and the corresponding bars are perpendicular, therefore the relative velocity of each link of the linkage is equal to the internal force in the corresponding rod of the structure

Face force – a multidimensional generalization of mesh currents

Maxwell diagram describes both the forces in the structure and the velocities in the mechanism In the linakage coordinates of the points in the diagram correspond to the absolute velocities of mechanism while in the structure they correspond to the face forces of the corresponding faces.

Face force and its line of action (absolute equimomental line) defines the moment at every point on the plane.

Absolute instant center of a link defines a velocity field in each point of the plane

The fields of moments are subject to the constraints at relative equimomental lines (bars), where the moments exerted by the two face forces are obliged to be equal

The velocity fields are subject to the constraints at relative instant centers (joints), where the velocities of the two links are obliged to be equal.

The relation between realizability of polyhedra and equimomental lines

From Maxwell Theorem it follows that since it is a projection if polyhedron that it has self-stress, that can be checked by equimomental lines

The method suggested by Whitely (1979), implemented (Ros, 2001) for checking the realizability of a drawing as a projection of polyhedron is by checking that every three planes intersect at one point

- Face vertex.

- Edge (x,y) intersection between the two
- faces (x,y)

- Each circuit of size 3 – a point due to dual
- Kennedy theorem.

Definition:Assur graph is a special graph satisfying the following properties:

A set of the graph vertices are defined to be "interface vertices".

Connecting Assur graph to another graph through the interface vertices maintains the rigidity property of the latter.

Assur graphs are minimal with respect to vertices. Assur graphs cannot be decomposed into other Assur graphs.

When all the interface vertices of the fundamental Assur graphs are contracted to one, the graph becomes self-dual.

Conjecture 3:

- Laman Graph corresponds to a static rigid framework (truss, isostatic framework) that has a special geometry, in which the framework possesses self-stress and all the bars corresponding to the Assur graph are mobile IFF the Laman graph consists of one and only one Assur graph.
