The methods of classical kinematics and of structures are combined to determine the internal loads acting on the members of a statically indeterminant mechanism. The effect of manufacturing tolerances on stresses is investigated. For example, end play in a crank bearing caused the bending stress in a connecting rod to increase by a factor of 13.7 for the same input.
