The multibody approach for the mechanical problems is a new one and it is based on a few aspects: determination of all constraints applied to the system; the written of the matrix of constraints for each body; determination of the kinetic and potential energy for the mechanical system; the obtaining of the matrix differential equation of motion; the solving of the non-linear differential system. The written of the equations of motion implies the introduction of the column matrices of the Lagrange multipliers; these multipliers can be hardly eliminated from the equations of motion. The methods for this elimination presented in the literature, base on the assumption that the so called matrix of inertia is an invertible one, which is not always true. Scientists created different algorithms which select the complete rank sub-matrix from the matrix of inertia. Another problem is that of the complexity of the equations of motion, equations obtained by applying the Lagrange second order equations. There exist some main directions of study: the obtaining of the equations of motion starting from other expressions given by Kane’s equations, Maggi’s equations, Appel’s equations, fractional calculus etc.; the introduction of some pseudo-coordinates (fake coordinates) which simplify the form of the equations of motion, but having the disadvantage that the equations of motion are no longer independent; the selection of other parameters as generalized coordinates, method which is particularly applied in the case of mechanisms etc. The advantage of such method is a relative one, that is this advantage exists only for some particular mechanical systems (presented as examples in the literature); these methods may be very toilsome for other mechanical systems. The selection of the method is up to every scientist.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
Rights granted to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration
For both subscription and open access articles, published in proprietary titles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration is granted the following rights:
- The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant rights to others, including for commercial purposes;
- For open access articles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration will apply the relevant third party user licence (Open access licencses) where Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration publishes the article on its online platforms;
- The right to provide the article in all forms and media so the article can be used on the latest technology even after publication;
- The authority to enforce the rights in the article, on behalf of an author, against third parties, for example in the case of plagiarism or copyright infringement.
