Hierarchy of Equations of Motion of Planar Mechanism with Elastic Link
The governing equations of motion are derived for a planar slider-crank linkage with rigid crank and elastic connecting rod, taking into account its distributed mass and elasticity. The system unknowns, namely, the axial displacement, the transverse displacement and the cross-sectional angular displacement of the elastic link, appear in the nonlinear equations of motion. The equations include the effects of shear deformation and rotatory inertia, and are also applicable for large displacements. As simplifications are systematically introduced, these equations are shown to degenerate into some well known equation forms.
