In this paper, an analytical procedure is developed for evaluating the filament loading, constrained elastic deformation, and overall stiffness of a circular brush, Filament deformation is computed on the basis of a large displacement mechanics analysis in conjunction with kinematic constraints for a flat, rigid workpart with smooth surface finish. Numerical results are reported which examine the relationship between workpart penetration, brush stiffness, and force distribution characteristics of the workpart contact zone.
