Optimum design of high-speed flexible robotic arms with dynamic behavior constraints

1997-10-01
A methodology is presented for the optimum design of robotic arms under time-dependent stress and displacement constraints by using mathematical programming. Finite elements are used in the modeling of the flexible links. The design variables are the cross-sectional dimensions of the elements. The time dependence of the constraints is removed through the use of equivalent constraints based on the most critical constraints. It is shown that this approach yields a better design than using equivalent constraints obtained by the Kresselmeier-Steinhauser function. An optimizer based on sequential quadratic programming is used and the design sensitivities are evaluated by overall finite differences. The dynamical equations contain the nonlinear interactions between the rigid and elastic degrees-of-freedom, To illustrate the procedure, a planar robotic arm is optimized for a particular deployment motion by using different equivalent constraints.

Stochastic analysis and adaptive control studies in legged systems
Er, Güner Dilşad; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert; Saranlı, Uluç; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-6-7)
Underactuated legged robots depict highly nonlinear and complex dynamical behaviors that create significant challenges in accurately modeling system dynamics using both first principles and system identification approaches. Hence, the design of stabilizing controllers becomes more challenging due to inaccurate modeling. Suppose physical parameters on mathematical models have miscalibrations due to uncertainty in identifying and modeling processes. In that case, designed controllers could perform poorly or e...
Free vibration characteristics of a 3d mixed formulation beam element with force-based consistent mass matrix
Soydas, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin (2017-09-01)
In this analytical study, free vibration analyses of a 3d mixed formulation beam element are performed by adopting force-based consistent mass matrix that incorporates shear and rotary inertia effects. The force-based approach takes into account the actual distribution of mass of an element in the derivation of the mass matrix. Moreover, the force-based approach enables accurate determination of free vibration frequencies of members with varying geometry and material distribution without any need for specif...
Intuitionistic, 2-way adaptive fuzzy control
Gurkan, E; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erkmen, İsmet (1999-05-15)
Our objective in this paper is to develop a 2-way adaptive fuzzy control system that makes use of the intuitionistic fuzzy sets for modeling expert knowledge bearing uncertainty. Adaptive fuzzy control systems are fuzzy logic systems whose rule parameters are automatically adjusted through training. The training of such system was applied until now, to supports of rule propositions with single distribution such that they can be termed 1-way adaptive. In our system, all supports to propositions have interval...
Comparison of 3D Versus 4D Path Planning for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Cicibas, Halil; Demir, Kadir Alpaslan; ARICA, NAFİZ (2016-11-01)
This research compares 3D versus 4D (three spatial dimensions and the time dimension) multi-objective and multi-criteria path-planning for unmanned aerial vehicles in complex dynamic environments. In this study, we empirically analyse the performances of 3D and 4D path planning approaches. Using the empirical data, we show that the 4D approach is superior over the 3D approach especially in complex dynamic environments. The research model consisting of flight objectives and criteria is developed based on int...
