Abstract

The nonlinear dynamic equations of a multibody system composed of flexible beams are derived by using the Lagrange multiplier method. The nonlinear Euler beam theory with inclusion of axial deformation effect is employed and its deformation field is described by exact vibration modes. A numerical procedure for solving the dynamic equations is presented based on the Newmark direct integration method combined with Newton-Raphson iterative method. The results of numerical examples prove the correctness and efficiency of the method proposed.
