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.
