Chapter 3:
Kinematic Mounts
Abstract
A kinematic mount, which is ideal for optics and optical structure mounting, is a mount in which all six degrees of freedom (three translations and three rotations) of a 3D object are restrained from moving without overconstraint. Such a mount requires six independently constrained degrees of freedom without redundancy. In other words, the mount is statically determinate as revealed by the six equations of equilibrium in a 3D coordinate system.
