Slat/flap driven mechanisms are essential transmission components of high lift systems and may contain combinations of linkages, ball screws, cam tracks and gears. This paper is, therefore, devoted to the structural synthesis of the aircraft slats/flaps driven mechanisms with six links. Based on the concept of generalization and specialization of mechanisms, all feasible new design alternatives are systematically derived and summarized as a complete atlas listed in Appendix. The provided atlas is useful for designers when considering alternative topological structures of the slats/flaps driven mechanisms in the future.
