Geometric, rotational or dynamic stiffening is a well and long known phenomenon in the analysis of flexible bodies. In multibody dynamics the effect has attracted attention only recently. The objective of this paper is to contribute to the understanding of the modeling of geometric stiffening in multibody system simulation. Today's methods for modeling the effect assume that the (applied) stresses in a flexible system body are zero in its reference configuration, in which it performs large overall motions. The corresponding inertial loads are shown to be balanced by constraint stresses. This can be seen easily when formulating the system equations of motion for nonzero reference stresses. As a result one obtains an efficient alternative to compute the geometric stiffening terms. The method increases the generaltity of flexible body models for multibody system simulation.
