Title Development and Evaluation of an Order-N Formulation for Multi-Flexible Body Space Systems.
Publication Date 2013
Media Count 8p
Personal Author L. J. Quiocho T. K. Ghosh
Abstract This paper presents development of a generic recursive Order-N algorithm for systems with rigid and flexible bodies, in tree or closed-loop topology, with N being the number of bodies of the system. Simulation results are presented for several test cases to verify and evaluate the performance of the code compared to an existing efficient dense mass matrix-based code. The comparison brought out situations where Order-N or mass matrix-based algorithms could be useful.
