Short summary
We present a solution-region-based synthesis approach for selecting optimal four-bar linkages with a Ball-Burmester point. We discuss both general and special cases of the Burmester point that coincide with the Ball point at the pole of the inflection circle. We generate different mechanism property charts by developing mechanism software that enables users to intuitively identify relevant linkage information and select the optimal linkage.
