Abstract : An experimental set up for a flexible H-beam type structure is designed to demonstrate flexible body maneuvers. The equations of motion for the structure are developed using the finite element method. The H-beam is sized by looking at the structural flexibility in the system's response. Specifications necessary for the hardware used in the experiment are given.
