Using (3 × 3) matrices with dual elements, two loop Watt and Stephenson type six-link spatial mechanisms with one revolute and six cylinder pairs and single loop R-C-R-R-P-R, R-C-R-R-R-R six-link mechanisms are examined to obtain closed form displacement relationships between independent and dependent displacement parameters. Displacement analyses are performed to illustrate the use of these displacement relationships.
