Computational Flexible Multibody Dynamics: A by Bernd Simeon

By Bernd Simeon

This monograph, written from a numerical research viewpoint, goals to supply a entire remedy of either the mathematical framework and the numerical tools for versatile multibody dynamics. not just is that this box completely and speedily turning out to be, with a variety of purposes in aerospace engineering, biomechanics, robotics, and automobile research, its foundations can be equipped on kind of confirmed mathematical types. concerning real computations, nice strides were remodeled the final 20 years, as subtle software program applications are actually in a position to simulating hugely complicated buildings with inflexible and deformable parts. The strategy utilized in this e-book should still profit graduate scholars and scientists operating in computational mechanics and similar disciplines in addition to these drawn to time-dependent partial differential equations and heterogeneous issues of a number of time scales. also, a couple of open concerns on the frontiers of analysis are addressed by means of taking a differential-algebraic technique and lengthening it to the suggestion of brief saddle aspect problems.

In Chap. 7, this intuitive reasoning will be made more precise by studying the discrete error propagation in the constraints when numerically solving the formulation of index 1. For the moment, we conclude that there is an inherent quadratic instability in this formulation. Baumgarte Stabilization A very early cure for the drift off goes back to Baumgarte [Bau72]. 80) with scalar parameters α and β. 80), which leaves the index unchanged. 81) becomes an asymptotically stable equation. , if α = β, the solution of the perturbed system ¨ + 2α w ˙ + α2w = ζ a , w ˙ 0 ) = ζ v , w(t0 ) = ζ p , w(t is given by w(t) = ζ p + (t − t0 )(ζ p + αζ v ) exp(−α(t − t0 )) + ζa .

89) for the relation between dependent and independent coordinates. 90) constitutes a local parametrization of the manifold M, with E being an open subset of Rns and U ⊂ M. 87). 12), it is now evident that the independent coordinates q I are a special choice of minimal coordinates, and furthermore, the null space matrix N is given by N (q I ) = ∂ψ(q I ) = Ψ (q I ) = ∂q I I . 12) are defined. One should be aware, however, that the construction of the local parametrization outlined so far is not suitable for a computer implementation.

4 Analysis of the Equations of Constrained Mechanical Motion 47 and one concludes μ = 0 since G(q) is of full rank and hence G(q)GT (q) invertible. 9b) coincide along any solution. 83) is 2 instead of 3. 83) also as stabilized index-2 system. 83) is also widespread where the kinematic equation is replaced by S q˙ = Sv − G(q)T μ. 84) The scaling matrix S ∈ Rnq ×nq should be symmetric positive definite so that G(q)S −1 GT (q) is invertible and the above conclusion μ = 0 remains valid. Specific choices are S = M(q) or, better with respect to efficiency, S = Md (q) where Md is a diagonal mass matrix obtained from mass lumping.
