Abstract

Actual kinematic chains commonly contain links whose flexibility greatly exceeds that of other links. It may then be necessary to take that flexibility into account. Booms of cranes and certain links of manipulators count among those. A large number of approaches in analysis of multibody systems can be found in literature with with one and more flexible links [Zienkiewicz O. C., 1972], [Wittbrodt E., 1983], [Wojciech S., 1984], [Huston R. L., Wanga Y., 1994], [Arteaga M. A., 1998], [Zienkiewicz O. C., Taylor R. L., 2000], [Berzeri M., et al., 2001], [Adamiec-Wójcik I., 2003], [Wittbrodt E., et al., 2006]. Chapter 9 introduces models of offshore cranes (a column one and an A-frame) which enable taking into account the flexibility of the supporting structure.
