By Xilun Ding, Xianwen Kong, Jian S. Dai

This booklet offers the newest advances within the learn and purposes of reconfigurable mechanisms and robots. It collects ninety three independently reviewed papers offered on the 3rd ASME/IFToMM foreign convention on Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots (ReMAR 2015) held in Beijing, China, 20-22 July 2015.

The convention papers are equipped into seven components to hide the reconfiguration idea, topology, kinematics and layout of reconfigurable mechanisms together with reconfigurable parallel mechanisms. the latest effects on reconfigurable robots are awarded together with their research, layout, simulation and regulate. Bio-inspired mechanisms also are explored within the difficult fields of rehabilitation and minimally invasive surgical procedure. This ebook additional addresses deployable mechanisms and origami-inspired mechanisms and showcases a variety of winning purposes of reconfigurable mechanisms and robots.

Advances in Reconfigurable Mechanisms and Robots II might be of curiosity for researchers, engineers and postgraduate scholars in mechanical engineering, electric engineering, laptop technological know-how and arithmetic.

Protect Yourself Secret of Unarmed Defense

In perfecting the program of self-defense in hand-to-hand wrestle, it's been the writers objective to make to be had to someone an easy set of security measures designed for use in any emergency the place ones individual is at risk of actual attack. totally defined either in photos and phrases within the pages of this booklet, those holds and throws show you how to guard yourself from the tips of jujitsu, judo, mugging, and all varieties of actual assault.

Lessons in Sabre, Singlestick

Учебник фехтования второй половины XIX века (фехтование саблей, палашом). Учебник имеет явно выраженную военно-прикладную направленность (защита от штыка, разрубание предметов). Автор книги - John Musgrave Waite - в свое время считался лучшим фехтовальщиком в английской армии. В данном учебнике он описывает собственную систему фехтования, имеющую явно выраженный военно-прикладной характер.

10] developed a 4-DOF kinematotropic hybrid parallel mechanism which can reconfigure the platform mobility without changing its topological structure. Qin et al. [11] revealed the multifurcation of the Q-Square, a plane symmetric multi-loop spatial linkage, in terms of screw systems. Comparing to the broad study of multi-loop spatial mechanisms with reconfigurability and single-loop linkages with invariant kinematic structure, mobile single-loop linkages that are capable of reconfiguring their kinematic structure had rarely been explored.

2 The 8R linkage in a plane-symmetric configuration connected to the base L1 with two identical chain-legs CL1 and CL2. The axes S1 and S2 of two joints at distal ends of base L1 are perpendicular and have the common point E. Similarly, the axes S5 and S6 of two joints at distal ends of output link L5 are perpendicular as well and have the common point F. In the chain-leg CL1, joint axes S2 and S3 intersect at the common point B4 and joint axes S4 and S5 have a common point C while axes S2 and S3 are parallel.

In the mean time, Dai [2] developed reconfigurable assemblies and packaging systems for folding decorative gifts and boxes, leading to exploration of mechanisms with metamorphosis [3, 4] and capability of changing their structure and subsequently motion characteristics. Following the study of constraint singularity, parallel mechanisms with dramatically different operation modes [5] were identified. This type of parallel mechanism can undergo a variety of transformations by passing constraint singularities.
