|Title:||Large deflections and vibrations of a tip pulled beam with variable transversal section|
|Abstract:||The use of long flexible probes in outdoors exploration vehicles, as opposed to short and rigid arms, is a convenient way to grant easier access to regions of scientific interest such as terrain slopes and cliff sides. Longer and taller arms can also provide information from a wider exploration horizon. The drawback of employing long and flexible exploration probes is the fact that its vibration is not easily controlled in real time operation by means of a simple analytic linear dynamic model. The numerical model required to describe the dynamics of a very long and flexible structure is often very large and of slow computational convergence. The present work proposes a simplified numerical model of a long flexible beam with variable cross section, which is statically deflected by a pulling cable. The paper compares the proposed simplified model with experimental data regarding the static and dynamic characteristics of a beam with variable cross section. The simulations show the effectiveness of the simplified dynamic model employed in an active control loop to suppress tip vibrations of the beam|
