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. The equations of motion with and without slider clearance are written. 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 its behaviour under motion reconfiguration.
