Controlled fluid recirculation for efficient hydraulic actuation of conservative loads
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1983-06)
Hydraulic actuators have traditionally found application in servo systems requiring high bandwidth, high power per unit mass, and permitting low overall energy efficiency, the presence of hydraulic oil, and a rather bulky ...
Experiments in optimal control of a flexible arm
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1985-06)
Research in the control of flexible arms may offer long term solutions to factory automation problems in applications where high performance, long reach, or mobility is required. This paper discusses the reconstruction of ...
Symbolic Modeling of Flexible Manipulators
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1987-04)
This paper presents a new systematic algorithm to symbolically derive the full nonlinear dynamic equations of motion of multi-link flexible manipulators. Lagrange's-Assumed modes method is the basis of the new algorithm ...
Development of a Curriculum for Integrated Manufacturing Systems Engineering
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1987-02)
This paper describes the Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems (CIMS) Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology, which was established with the help of a grant from the IBM Corporation. The program began its third ...
An approach to the minimum time control of a simple flexible arm
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1983-11)
To enable faster robot arm motion one might reduce the arm weight and use a minimum time control. Light arms will be flexible. A simple example of a light arm is a single beam, rotating about one end, and subject to bending. ...
