Deploying Impact Dynamics Simulation on Deployable Mechanism of Folding Wing with Clearance
Based on the non-linear equivalent spring-damper model in the "two-state model", Impact model with hinge clearance for deployable mechanism of folding wing is set up and deploying dynamics on deployable mechanism of folding wing is simulated including impact force variation caused by the size of clearance and the clearance friction by using ADAMS software. The results show that the random continuous impact force is produced by the influence of clearance; as dimensions of the clearance increase, impact times decrease and amplitudes of impact forces are increased; System energy consumption is speeded up and to some extent times of impacts with clearance and disturbance effects of deployable mechanism is suppressed by friction in the whole deployable process.
