Abstract :

In the recent past various human powered mechanisms such as brick making mechanism, chaff cutter, soap mixer, flour mill etc are developed. The common system among all these mechanisms is the flywheel motor. Flywheel is used in manually driven machines, mainly as flywheel motor. Flywheel is pedaled to a higher speed to store kinetic energy. This K.E. is drained out in a short period to accomplish a desired process which needs process power beyond human capacities. In this paper we discuses about the working construction and optimizing the performing characteristics of various mechanism (quick return ratio one mechanism and double lever inversion mechanism).
