Automotive Mode shapes of half-rhombus mechanism

  1. Feb 16, 2017 #1
    I want to determine the natural frequencies and the mode shapes of the given mechanism ( it consists of 2 inclined beams connected together by a compliant link, the bottom end is fixed and the upper end is a roller support). I have done Finite element modeling but I need to get some analytical solution for this mechanism, I have been trying to solve it as 2 continuous beam but here are the problems, the boundary conditions are not clear for me also I can't join the 2 solutions together. Any idea !
