The first of these papers considering a hydraulically actuated mechanism presents the common oscillating cylinder arrangement and sets of equations which describe the dynamic system. It then defines dimensionless groups that characterize the actuator-mechanism and explores the quasi-linear behavior of the system. This present paper focuses on the nonlinear nature of the system. Effects of transmission angle, mechanism geometry and loading are considered as well as the range of operation in which the small perturbation behavior provides an adequate description of the dynamic response. The paper closes by identifying a new parameter which plays an important role in characterizing the dependence of the system transient response on mechanism geometry.
