In this paper, an index of optimization is proposed for improving the dynamic behavior of structumlly flexible manipulators. The improvement is achieved through an optimization scheme where a cost function associated with the lowest natural flexible mode and an index defined as modal accessibility, zs optimized subject to certain constraints. The… CONTINUE READING
