A constraint violation stabilization technique for solving differential algebraic equations (DAE) of multibody dynamic (MBD) systems is presented. The technique., based on the input-output feedback linearization, is employed to transform the nonlinear differential algebraic equation into a set of linear equations. Upon the input-output linear relationship is reached with proven stable zero dynamics, a robust control design is adopted to construct constraint forces that can be used to effectively correct the errors accumulated in the constraint equations during the process of time integration. In the present development, if pole placement method is used in control design of the resulting linear differential equations, constraint forces based on Baumgarte’s constraint violation stabilization technique are recovered. On the other hand, if variable structure control design is adopted, a new method in calculating constraint forces is obtained. A numerical example is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of stabilizing the constraint violation by using the proposed technique.
