Abstract

Abstract Due to manufacturing error and wear, the profiles of bushing and pin in revolute clearance joints are usually non-circular, while traditional kinematic models for revolute clearance joints generally assume a circular profile for the pin or bushing, which may not be able to accurately capture the kinematic behavior of real revolute joints in multibody systems. To this end, a curvature center method was proposed for the kinematic modeling of revolute clearance joints with noncircular bushing and pin. In the proposed method, both the noncircular bushing and pin were discretized, and the curvature center and radius corresponding to each discrete point were then obtained to detect the point of contact between the bushing and pin based on their kinematic constraints. The number of discrete points was determined based on both accuracy and efficiency of the proposed curvature center method, which was then applied to model a revolute clearance joint between the slider and the link of a slider-crank mechanism. Via comparison to the traditional geometric center method and discrete point method, it was validated that the proposed method can achieve a comparable accuracy in modeling revolute joints with a circular pin. The unique advantage of the proposed curvature center method is its ability in modeling revolute joints with noncircular bushing and noncircular pin, which was also demonstrated via a series of simulations. Simulation results show a significant influence of noncircular bushing and noncircular pin on the dynamic response of the multibody system. This implies the promising value of the proposed method in studying the effect of manufacturing error or wear of both bushing and pin on the system’s dynamic performance and/or service life.
