Abstract

The modelling of flexible elements in mechanical systems has been investigated via several methods issuing from both the field of multi-body dynamics and the area of structural mechanics and vibration theory. As regards the multibody approach, recursive formulations in relative coordinates are quite suitable and efficient for a large variety of applications. Such a formalism is developed here for a general multibody system containing flexible plates and in such a way that its full symbolic generation is possible within the ROBOTRAN program [1].
