Dissipation Induced Instabilities
The main goal of this paper is to prove that if the energy- momentum (or energy-Casimir) method predicts formal instability of a relative equilibrium in a Hamiltonian system with symmetry, then with the addition of ...
On the Geometry and Dynamics of Floating Four-Bar Linkages
In this paper, we investigate the kinematics and dynamics of floating, planar four-bar linkages. The geometry of configuration space is analyzed through the classical theory of mechanisms due to Grashof. The techniques of ...
Adaptive Friction Compensation for Bi-Directional Low-Velocity Position Tracking
This paper presents a comparative investigation of friction- compensating control strategies designed to improve low-velocity position tracking performance in the presence of velocity reversals for servomechanisms. The ...
