Abstract

The dynamic response of flexible beams, plates, and solids undergoing arbitrary spatial motions are systematically derived via a unified approach. This formulation is capable of incorporating arbitrary representation of the kinematics of deformation, phenomenon of dynamic stiffening, and complete nonlinear interaction between elastic- and rigid-body dynamics encountered in constrained multibody systems. It is shown that the present theory captures the phenomenon of dynamic stiffening due to the transfer of the axial and membrane forces to the bending equations of beams and plates, respectively. Examples are presented to illustrate the proposed formulations.
