Abstract

In this work, a recently developed superelement formulation in the floating frame of reference is implemented for plates. By using Craig-Bampton modes, a coordinate transformation from the absolute floating frame coordinates and local elastic coordinates to the absolute interface coordinates is established. Several benchmark problems are considered to validate the formulation for plates. Results from the superelement formulation for plates are in good agreement with other formulations, meaning that the formulation can successfully be used for the efficient description of plates in flexible multibody systems, such as flexure mechanisms that can no longer be modelled as beam elements because of their unbeamlike dimensions.
