Abstract

A mechanism with an oscillating slider is a mechanism quite often used in the technique. It has some advantages over other similar mechanisms being able to work with accelerations and reduced forces under the same conditions with another similar mechanism. For example, an internal combustion engine could be built more efficiently with this mechanism, resulting in a motor that would successfully replace Otto's classic one. In the paper, the kinematics, forces and their distribution will be presented within such a mechanism.
