Abstract

Some didactic issues associated with the computation of degrees-of-freedom (d.o.f.) are herein discussed. In particular, the paper reports different definitions and methodologies of computation of this important parameter. It is also proposed an analytical approach to the d.o.f. computation of planar figures subjected to unilateral constraints. Mechanisms with variable kinematic structure are included in the present analysis. Some ambiguities in the d.o.f. definition are pointed out.
