Moreover, the recognition process of a revolute joint is approximately the same as that of the prismatic joint.
We treated leaf margins as categorical data and scored them in the following manner: 0, entire revolute margins; 0.
9-3 cm wide, elliptical or narrowly ovate, cuneate to rounded and sometimes short-decurrent at base, flat or slightly revolute at margin, abruptly short-acuminate or obtuse and apiculate at apex, glabrous or bearing a few short appressed hairs abaxially near base, bearing 2 large raised glands on abaxial surface at base and occasionally 1 or 2 additional glands on abaxial surface above base, the glands rarely on decurrent laminar tissue and appearing to be on apex of petiole, the principal lateral veins 4-6 on each side of midrib; petiole of larger leaves 7-14 mm long, very sparsely sericeous to soon glabrate, eglandular except for glands on decurrent lamina (see above); stipules 0.
This system is simplified by replacing the fixed joint for a revolute joint between the bell crank and the chassis and a torque in opposition to its motion as a function of the torsion stiffness of the bar and the turn of the bell crank.
Apices of petals: straight = 0; tortuous = 1; involute = 2; revolute = 3.
The project revolute the coal seam gas reserves into liquefied natural gas.
In the further will consider kinematic chain which consist only from revolute (R) and prismatic (P) joints to ease the task.
The mechanical structure of the new prototype (Figure 1(a)) consists of four links that create four revolute joints covering the basic DOFs of the human arm, allowing the user to perform a shoulder abduction-adduction (abd-add), a flexion-extension (flx-ext), a horizontal flx-ext, and an elbow flx-ext motion, as well as three sets of zero-free-length springs that provide the required resistance for the designated upper-limb resistance training.
5-(13) cm, elliptic-lanceolate, cuspidate apically and acute to obtuse basally, 5-nerved, secondary lateral veins 1-2 mm distant chartaceous to coriaceous, entire, with broadly revolute margins, brownish green and glabrous adaxially, pale rusty-brown abaxially; petioles 18-30 (35) mm long and 1.
A coupler joint was created, linking the revolute joint (driver) of the lever arm attached to the handle bars with the translational joint of the weight stack.
The model with revolute joints and links moves in a 2-D vertical X-Y plane.
