A technique for analyzing two- and three-dimensional linkages by solving vector equations for position, motion, and force was programmed for a digital computer. A model plex that treats a linkage as one or more vector loops is generated. The program selects the applicable equations for position solution. Algorithms are simplified by storing linkage information in the form of a tree-organized plex.
