Analysis and Optimal Design of Spatial Mechanical Systems

This paper presents a new approach to optimal design of large multibody spatial mechanical systems which takes advantage of both numerical analysis and symbolic computing. Identification of system topology is carried out using graph theory. The equations of motion are formulated in terms of relative...
