Title Chain Dynamic Formulations for Multibody System Tracked Vehicles.
Publication Date Aug 2012
Media Count 18p
Personal Author A. A. Shabana A. K. Aboubakr M. Letherwood M. Wallin P. Jayakumar
Abstract MBS based computer simulations are necessary for the design and performance evaluation of complex tracked vehicles. The development of accurate and efficient tracked vehicle models can be achieved with a better understanding of MBS dynamic formulation. Three different chain formulations will be discussed using the Augmented Formulation: Ideal Joint Formulation, Compliant Discrete-based Formulation, and Compliant Continuum-based Formulation.
