Four-Bar Mechanism with Assembly Defect
Application ID: 14653
This is a benchmark model for flexible multibody dynamics. This model simulates the dynamic behavior of a planar four-bar mechanism when one of the joints has a defect.
The out-of-plane motion in the mechanism, caused by the defect in the joint, is compared with the results from the reference.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:Multibody Dynamics Module
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Spezifikationstabelle and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
