This paper contains the result of a computer simulation of the dynamic performance of a manipulator. Provision is made in the program developed to represent the manipulator in either a redundant or non-redundant form. The models derived are used in simulation studies to evaluate the dynamic behaviour of the process when subjected to different control strategies for a range of operational tasks. The dynamic manipulator model presented is derived from the laws of Newtonian and Lagrangian Mechanics.
