Vibration of a Long, Tip Pulled Deflected Beam
What is it about?
The use of Long, flexible deployable probe in the exploration of planets with a large gravitational field would be of interest to reach regions of scientific interest of difficult access, such as cliff sides and terrain slopes. Vibration control in this case is a sensitive issue that can be addressed by the use of a reliable model of dynamics of the long exploration probe. The present work addresses the problem of building a simple dynamic model of a long beam deformed by a tip pulling cable Read More: http://arc.aiaa.org/doi/full/10.2514/1.J052439
Why is it important?
The present work proposes the combination of a nonlinear static deformation model of the same structure and a courser low-order finite element model of the deformed beam in order to assess its dynamic characteristics. Results of the different modeling strategies are compared and discussed. Read More: http://arc.aiaa.org/doi/full/10.2514/1.J052439
