MetadataShow full item record
Predictions of natural frequencies of flexible manipulator arms as performed by alternative structural models and computer implementations are compared. The Space Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (RMS) manipulator arm is used as the basis for comparison. Finite element and transfer matrix implementations of Bernoulli Euler, lumped mass, and consistent mass models are considered.
