Özet

Conformal polyhedral linkages have drawn attention of scientists and engineers since the invention of Buckminster Fuller: a highly overconstrained spatial linkage, the Jitterbug. Many studies aimed to generalize Jitterbug-like linkages have been published, however a complete classification does not yet exist. This study introduces a definition for Jitterbug-like linkages and two major assumptions and then focuses on the properties of homothetic linkages. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
