This paper presents a systematic method to symbolically derive the full nonlinear dynamic equations of motion of Multi-link flexible manipulators. Lagrange's-Assumed Modes method is used for the dynamic modelling and implemented via a commercially available symbolic manipulation program. Adaptation of the method suitable for symbolic manipulation and advantages are discussed. Simulation results for a two-link planar flexible arm presented.
