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.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
