Kinematic joints are classified in lower pairs and higher pairs. Most multibody modelling techniques focus on lower pairs, because a complete classification in six types is available. Higher pairs are more diverse. In this article, higher pairs that can be exactly modelled by lower pairs are investigated. A complete classification of higher...

Background: The steep radiation dose gradients in cervical cancer brachytherapy (BT) necessitate a thorough understanding of the behavior of afterloader source cables or needles in the curved channels of (patient-tailored) applicators. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to develop and validate computer models to simulate: (1) BT source...

Humans vary the stiffness in their joints depending on tasks and circumstances. For posture control a high joint stiffness is required to withstand perturbations, whereas for force control a low joint stiffness is required. To investigate how humans vary their joint stiffness precisely for moving an arm, a wearable device is needed that can...

The dynamic balancing of flexible mechanisms, that is, the reduction or elimination of shaking forces and shaking moments on the support structure, is considered. Two approaches are pursued: one uses similarity and the other modal balancing. A single rotating link can be balanced by a properly scaled countermass, for which balancing criteria...

A review of the current use of multibody dynamics methods in the analysis of the dynamics of vehicles is given. Railway vehicle dynamics as well as road vehicle dynamics are considered, where for the latter the dynamics of cars and trucks and the dynamics of single-track vehicles, in particular motorcycles and bicycles, are reviewed....

The use of principal points and principal vectors in the formulation of the equations of motion of a general 4R planar four-bar linkage is shown with two kinds of methods, one that opens kinematic loops and one that does not. The opened kinematic loop approach analyses the moving links as a system with a tree connectivity, introducing...

It can be observed that there is a wide variety in the width of bicycle lanes. It can range from wide to very narrow, see figure 1. Several guidelines disagree on the desired width of a bicycle lane [1, 2]. These guidelines are mainly based on observations and best practices. Instead of such an evolutionary approach<br/>we propose to determine...
