A finite thin circular beam element for the out-of-plane vibration analysis of curved beams is presented in this paper. Its stiffness matrix and mass matrix are derived, respectively, from the strain energy and the kinetic energy by using the natural shape functions derived from an integration of...
An object transport system is an essential device in the factory automation system (FAS). Generally, an object transport system is driven by a conveyor belt system or a magnetic levitation system. However, contact force in the conventional transport system can damage precision optical components,...
