resistant body in a machine which moves relative to another
resistant body is called Kinematic link or element. A
resistant body is which do not go under deformation while
transmitting the force.
links can be divided into three types.
In this type of link there is no deformation while
transmitting the motion. Motion between the piston and crank
can be considered as a rigid link.
Flexible link- In this type of link there is partial deformation while transmitting
the motion. Belt drive is an example of flexible link.
In this type of link the motion is transmitted with the help
of fluid pressure. Hydraulic brake is an example of fluid
