Vreeburg, J.P.B. (author)A model with two interacting bodies, for a spacecraft with liquid, has been developed. The spacecraft without liquid is the "tank" and is characterized by its inertial properties and the location and size of a spherical cavity. In the cavity is located the "slug", a sphere of uniform density with a variable radius. At the point of contact...report 1996

Couwenberg, H.J.H. (author), ten Dam, A.A. (author)During operations with a manipulator arm situations will occur when the manipulator endeffector is, or comes, in contact with its environment. The dynamics equations, which describe the motion of the manipulator, can be represented by an ordinary differential equation for the free motion and an additional algebraic (in)equality for the motion...report 1990

Groothuizen, R.J.P. (author)An inverse robot kinematics method is being developed that is to be applicable to any sequential rigid robot. In this report, first requirements are identified and a survey of existing methods is given. An. evaluation of these methods with respect to the requirements then shows that a method based on optimization is the best candidate. It...report 1990

van der Wees, A.J. (author), van den Berg, J.I. (author)NLR mainly performs applied scientific research for use in the aerospace industry. In many cases the product has the form of an information system for the design, production and usage of aerospace vehicles. Within this context, the mathematician contributes, in cooperation with specialists from other disciplines such as aerodynamics, structures,...report 1990

ten Dam, A.A. (author)Numerical simulation of constrained dynamical systems is known to exhibit stability problems even when the unconstrained system can be simulated in a stable manner. We show that not the constraints themselves, but the transformation of a continuous set of equations to a discrete set of equations is the true source of the stability problem....report 1990
