Abstract

A parallel leaf spring guidance is defined as a benchmark problem for flexible multibody formalisms and codes. The mechanism is loaded by forces and an additional moment or misalignment. Buckling loads, changes in compliance and frequencies, and large-amplitude vibrations are calculated. A previously developed beam element for modelling the leaf springs is shown to be able to describe these phenomena with a limited number of elements. The results are validated by experiments.
