In this paper analytical expressions are derived which describe the nature of the stress fluctuation induced in a member of a high speed mechanism. For design applications a harmonic analysis of the stress fluctuation is presented and the results are expressed in a non-dimensional form. For illustrative purposes, the analysis is centered on the coupler link of the well-known slider-crank mechanism.
