The Planar Mechanism Kinematic Simulator (PMKS) is an important software tool for the kinematic analysis of planar linkages. The tool is also capable of carrying out force analysis of linkages with revolute joints. In order to enhance the capability and carry out force analysis of slider-crank linkages, this major qualifying project was involved in developing static and dynamic equations of four-bar and six-bar slider-crank linkages that could be implemented within PMKS. Equations were sourced from standard text-books. These equations were evaluated and implemented in MATLAB and tested on multiple example problems. These examples linkages were also recreated in Working Model 2-D software to compare results.
