Modeling and Simulation of a Slider Crank Mechanism with a Flexible Extensible Link
Publisher: Springer Netherlands
In this paper the modelling of a slider-crank mechanism with an extensible flexible link is presented and its dynamical behaviour analyzed. The link flexibility is modelled using extensible rigid links and rotational springs. Accurate simulation of the extensible mechanism is performed to study its possible performance and behaviour under the combined effect of different parameters. A dynamic analysis is carried out in order to understand the changes under dynamic reconfiguration.
