Closed Kinematic Loops

The tools that we have learnt to use so far suffice for modeling tree-structured multi-body systems.

Yet, many practical systems contain closed kinematic loops.

Kinematic loops offer an improved mechanical stability to a system, and are therefore used frequently.

As an example, consider a half-timber house.  The wooden frames are over-determined and provide the necessary stability that prevents the house from collapsing.

A typical example may be the pentagraph mounting of an office lamp that can be moved around to provide light where it is most needed.
