This paper takes the crank-rocker mechanism as the research object, purposed for the simulation of the motion pair with clearance utilizing the contact force model and the coulomb friction model, we build the virtual prototype of four-bar mechanism with clearance joints in the ADAMS. The article mainly contrasts the influence dynamics characteristics towards the mechanism multi-joint clearance between the rigid rocker and the flexible rocker. Considering the jointed arm’s flexibility, the four, five and six order modal of the rocker, generated by ANSYS as a neutral document, were imported into ADAMS for simulation. The result shows that Mechanism with four joint clearance increased the impact on the speed and the acceleration appeared greater fluctuation, the flexible rod has a buffer effect to the contact-impact forces, and the dynamic characteristics of fluctuations are improved.
Key words: crank-rocker / multi-joint clearance / flexible body / ADAMS / dynamics characteristics
