The purpose of this thesis is to provide a complete package for the synthesis and design of the RSSR spatial function generating mechanism.

In addition to the introductory material this thesis is divided into three sections. The section on background kinematic theory includes synthesis, analysis, link rotatability, transmission quality, and branching analysis. The second division details the computer application of the kinematic theory. The program RSSRSD has been developed to incorporate the RSSR synthesis and design theory. An example is included to demonstrate the computer-implemented theory.

The third part of this thesis includes miscellaneous mechanism considerations and recommendations for further research.

The theoretical work in this project is a combination of original derivations and applications of the theory in the mechanism literature.
