Effort to increase productivity calls for increasingly higher operating speed. Consequently, many part of a machinery are made as light as possible to avoid the detrimental inertial effects. This condition means several of the elements are no longer rigid and tend to experience elastic deformation in operation. The existence of the deformation yields element possessing position dependent dynamic parameters. Mechanisms with time-varying parameter have a phenomenon known as parametric instability where the mechanism could becomes dynamically unstable at several frequency bands, even at relatively low excitation frequency. This research investigates the dynamic behaviour of a flexible coupler on an experimental four-bar mechanism setup. The study examines the coupler vibration response due to varying crank length and crank speed.
