Four-Bar Mechanism with Assembly Defect

Application ID: 14653


This is a benchmark model for flexible multibody dynamics. This model simulates the dynamic behavior of a planar four-bar mechanism when one of the joints has a defect.

The out-of-plane motion in the mechanism, caused by the defect in the joint, is compared with the results from the reference.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
