Paper Abstract

The objective of this study is to provide experimental data on bending oscillation of a deploying or retrieving beam cantilevered by a clamping device with three pairs of rollers and springs, and to formulate a finite element analysis for treating the corresponding oscillation of the axially moving beam by using beam elements of varying length. The equation of motion of the beam derived is numerically solved with the aid of the modified Newmark method, the so-called (alpha) -method, to simulate the transitional motion of the beam measured experimentally.
