I'm trying to run c code generated from a simple MapleSim example (Spin Up Beam). To makes things even simpler, I set the input real expression to just time, and changed the input function in my c code to:

static void inpfn(double T, double *U)
U[0] = T;

I set all the state variables to 0 for the initial conditions. I ran the code and my output doesn't resemble the MapleSim output at all, and I'm getting errors. So my question is about the state variables, which I initially set to 0:

* State variable(s):
* x[ 0] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf1`(t)
* x[ 1] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf1`(t),t)
* x[ 2] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf2`(t)
* x[ 3] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf2`(t),t)
* x[ 4] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf1`(t)
* x[ 5] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf1`(t),t)
* x[ 6] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf2`(t)
* x[ 7] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf2`(t),t)

What do these represent for this flexible beam (FB3)? I.e. what is uf1, uf2, vf1, vf2? Should they be set to 0, or no?



I need to solve the Bending Vibration of Euler-Bernouli Beam Problem and I keep getting stuck. I start with a fairly straight forward fourth order differential eq. Using the dsolve command gives me the general solution


Maple insist on using e^(x)+e^(-x) instead on sinh and cosh - but it's the same. So far so good.

My specific problem is a clamped-pinned beam of length l - so my boundary conditions are (correct me if I'm wrong here):

In the clamped end at x=0: Y(0)=0, Y'(0)=0

In the pinned end at x=l: Y(L)=0, Y''(0)=0

Using both the dsolve(ode,ics) and a dsolve(ode) and then solve(ics) both results in the trivial solution Y(x)=0 - which is wrong - I know there is a tan(a*l)-tanh(a*l) solution.

To get a easier and well documented example to solve by hand, I also tried with a simply supported beam. Boundary conditions are then:



Same result - only the trivial solution Y(x)=0 and If you solve it by hand you get a sin(a*l) solution.


What am I doing wrong? Is it syntax error on my part or what?


I have attached both my maple doc and a pdf with a walkthrough of the correct solution. Transverse_vibration_of_beams.pdf


Any help would be appreciated

Kind regards



Hi all

I want to analysis this beam  (a simple and a tip rotational spring) in Maple to find the first four Frequencies...

Please help me

Hi everyone.

I have a question:

How I can simulate the amplification of the beam in a diode-pumped ytterbium-doped material?

I am work on thin disk laser resonators and its gain medium is Yb:YAG.


I'm trying to solve the effects (deflictions, tensions, etc) of a load on a timoshenko beam. It uses two partial diffential equations, wherein q is the load:

> PDE1 := kappa*G*A*(diff(y(x, t), x, x)-(diff(theta(x, t), x)))-rho*A*(diff(y(x, t), t, t))-q;

> PDE2 := E*J*(diff(theta(x, t), x, x))+kappa*G*A*(diff(y(x, t), x)-theta(x, t))-rho*J*(diff(theta(y, x), t, t));

The boundary conditions are that in the corners the moments (derative of theta...

Hi there,

I have created an animated plot of a modelled beam under sinusoidal forcing. It shows the beam bending along the x-axis. I was wondering how to plot the animated function with the beam lying along the y-axis instead of the x-axis as happens when i use the following command:


Any idea's?

I am building a robot arm,now I want to replace the rigid arm with the flexible arm. How can I control the arm's form?
