This paper describes a theory for dynamics simulation of non-linear elastically deformable mechanisms as a basis for compliant manipulators. The description of the mechanical structure based on local coordinates in a convective metric for one-dimensional structures is introduced. Besides the quasi-static case, loads related to mass inertial terms are taken into consideration. This changes the original first order set of linear differential equations into non-linear second order partial differential equations. Some numerical aspects for the generation of a solution for the initial boundary value problem described are discussed.
