      Dear all,
      I am using a Rocker-Rocker arm mechanism system, for torque transmission.
      Link1& Link3 are plane 4mm thick, Link2 is a rod element. Now the question is, I can have a squre link, or a curved link will be another option, will link shape play a role in power transmission?
      I think, being a rocker-rocker type, advantage in one direction of rotation, will be a dis-advantage in another direction, because of Mass Moment of Inertia. But dont know that I am doing right or..??
      So, need your views.

      Thanks,
      Sachin Patil

      Can you post an image of what you are asking?

      As far as the effect on link working due the change in cross-section, there will be no change..
      Yes, moment of inertia will of course play roll but as asked earlier, a drawing can be the best explanation...
