ABSTRACT NOT AVAILABLE.
The Dynamics of Two Coupled Rigid Bodies.
In this paper we derive a Poisson bracket on the phase space so(3)*x so(3)*x S0(3) such that the dynamics of two three- dimensional rigid bodies coupled by a ball and socket joint can be written as a Hamiltonian system.
Hamiltonian Structures and Stability for Rigid Bodies with Flexible Attachments.
The dynamics of a rigid body with flexible attachments is studied. A general framework for problems of this type is established in the context of Poisson manifolds and reduction. A simple model for a rigid body with an ...
Stability Analysis of a Rigid Body with a Flexible Attachment Using the Energy-Casimir Method.
We consider a system consisting of a rigid body to which a linear extensible shear beam is attached. For such a system the Energy- Casimir method can be used to investigate the stability of the equilibria. In the case we ...
