Modelling the Dynamics of Flexible
The goal of this project is to develop a dynamics formalism for flexible
multibody systems by adopting the object-oriented concept. A multibody
system can be regarded as a combination of bodies and kinematic constraints
which can be treated as elementary ``object''. Each of these objects is
being cast into a module equipped with characteristic parameters and operations.
The system object is being designed to organize the topological
structure of the multibody system and generate the global equations of
motion. The object-oriented approach makes it easier to upgrade or modify
already designed systems by simply adding or replacing objects. This is
a collaborative project with CAE.
