In many fields of computer science and other engineering areas, the authors often need to balance multi-articulated structures. In this paper, they formalize this kind of balancing problem from a more physical and theoretical point of view. Through describing details of all the solution steps, they finally represent a set of algorithms to automatically balance multi-articulated objects with tree topologies. Given the geometric configurations and masses at the leaf nodes of target multi-articulated objects, their algorithms achieve their balanced state through adjusting the mass of each node.
