Mechanical Systems with Partial Damping: Two Examples
We discuss the problem of constructing steady state motions of mechanical systems with partial damping. A planar three bar linkage with viscous damping at one of the joints is considered as an example. We show that for a ...
Steady Rigid-Body Motions in a Central Gravitational Field
In recent work, the exact dynamic equations for the motion of a finite rigid body in a central gravitational field were shown to be of Hamiltonian form with a noncanonical structure. In this paper, the notion of relative ...
