Abstract

In this work, a recently developed superelement in the floating frame of reference formulation will be applied to plate elements. It is shown that for applications in which short and wide leaf springs are required, currently used flexible multibody models using beam elements do not provide sufficient accuracy. Relevance of the new formulation for the efficient modelling of flexure mechanisms will be shown.
