DOUBLE-HEART CURVE GENERATED BY AN ORIGINAL MECHANISM
Keywords:double-heart curve, curve generator mechanism
Different variants of cardioids were reviewed and authors decided to an end to focus on the usability of a Double-heart curve. Starting from the geometric information related to its generation, the synthesis of an original generating mechanism was performed firstly, followed by the realization of its structural analysis. Mechanism’s positions were computed and the imposed curve was generated. The variations of certain trajectories were deduced from the corresponding diagrams. The mechanism sizes were modified and a wide class of curves presenting interest from the geometric point of view was obtained. Some mathematical properties of the curves generated by the above mechanism are studied (binormal vector, tangent equation in a current point, normal plane equation, tangent versor, versor of normal to the curve).
