Student's Work: Symmetric rolling motion
The instantaneous pole P traces the socalled fixed/moving polode in the
fixed/moving system during the constrained motion of a given mechanism. It
is well known that this motion can also be generated by the rolling of the
moving polode along the fixed polode without sliding. If the polodes are
symmetric with respect to the pole tangent, then the motion is called
symmetric rolling.
For the following three mechanisms the polodes are conic sections:
