This paper deals with the kinematic synthesis of volumetric rotary machines, which are generated by the planetary motion of regular curve-polygons. In particular, the synthesis of both outer and inner conjugate profiles has been formulated as envelope of the polycentric profiles of a generating regular curve-polygon with any number of lobes, different radii of the circumcircle and rounded corners. A regular curve-polygon with cusp corners can be obtained as a particular case, like the Reuleaux triangle. Finally, the proposed formulation has been implemented in a Matlab code and several examples are reported.

Abstract

This paper deals with the kinematic synthesis of volumetric rotary machines, which are generated by the planetary motion of regular curve-polygons. In particular, the synthesis of both outer and inner conjugate profiles has been formulated as envelope of the polycentric profiles of a generating regular curve-polygon with any number of lobes, different radii of the circumcircle and rounded corners. A regular curve-polygon with cusp corners can be obtained as a particular case, like the Reuleaux triangle. Finally, the proposed formulation has been implemented in a Matlab code and several examples are reported.
