International Journal of Manufacturing Technology and Management (IJMTM), Vol. 14, No. 1/2, 2008

Abstract: To achieve computer aided designs for mechanism in intelligent CAD, one method is to apply graph theory. During the process of enumeration of kinematic structures using graph theory, the topological expression mode of mechanisms is an important and complicated problem. A graph model of satellite gear mechanism is presented based on investigation of the topological characteristics of the kinematic structure of satellite gear mechanism with graph theory. In addition, some measures for the identification of isomorphism of the graph mode are discussed. The work will be a reliable topological expression mode for intelligent CAD of satellite gear mechanism.
