The point at the end of each swing of a moving crank and connecting rod where both lie in the same straight-line while the turning force used by the linking pole is zero. Also referred to as dead-point.
The position associated with crank of a piston when it is good connecting pole
In mech., that position of the hands of a link-motion in which they coincide with all the type of centers—that is, if the links are in similar straight-line.
the career of a crank when it's in line with the connecting pole and never applying torque
