    • Network model approach to the analysis of multirigid-body systems 

      Tokad, Y. (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1993)
      The mathematical model of a rigid body in three dimensional motion developed in [1] is used to formulate the equations of motion for the systems of rigid bodies connected to form a special type of open kinematic chain. In ...
    • On the boundary control of a flexible robot arm 

      Morgül, Ömer (IEEE, 2001)
      We consider a flexible robot arm modeled as a single flexible link clamped to a rigid body. We assume that the system performs only planar motion. For this system, we pose two control problems; namely, the orientation and ...
    • On the stabilization of a flexible beam with a tip mass 

      Conrad, F.; Morgül, Ö. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 1998-11)
      We study the stability of a flexible beam that is clamped at one end and free at the other; a mass is also attached to the free end of the beam. To stabilize this system we apply a boundary control force at the free end ...
    • Orientation and control of a flexible spacecraft: planar motion 

      Morgül, Ömer (IEEE, 1990)
      We consider a flexible spacecraft modeled as a rigid body which rotates in an inertial frame; a light flexible beam is clamped to the rigid body at one end and free at the other end. We assume that the flexible spacecraft ...
    • Practical and realistic animation of cloth 

      Bayraktar, Serkan; Güdükbay, Uğur; Özgüç, Bülent (IEEE, 2007-05)
      In this paper, we propose a system for the practical animation of cloth materials. A mass spring based cloth model is used. Explicit time integration methods are used to solve the equations of motion. We update the spring ...
