Abstract:

A new modelling and computational task for the integrated design of flexible structures undergoing large overall motions has been developed and analyzed. This new approaches utilizes geometrically exact structured models and have the advantage that these models can handle coupled rigid body-flexible appendage systems without resorting to the introduction of the so-called floating frames.
