Generalized divide and conquer algorithm (GDCA) is presented in this paper. In this new formulation, generalized forces appear explicitly in handle equations in addition to the spatial forces, absolute and generalized coordinates which have already been used in the original version of DCA. To accommodate these generalized forces in handle equations, a transformation is presented in this paper which provides an equivalent spatial force as an explicit function of a given generalized force. Each generalized force is then replaced by its equivalent spatial force applied from the appropriate parent body to its child body at the connecting joint without violating the dynamics of the original system. GDCA can be widely used in multibody problems in which a part of the forcing information is provided in generalized format. Herein, the application of the GDCA in controlling multibody systems in which the known generalized forces are fedback to the system is explained. It is also demonstrated that in inverse dynamics and closed-loop control problems in which the imposed constraints are often expressed in terms of generalized coordinates, a set of unknown generalized forces must be considered in the dynamics of system. As such, using both spatial and generalized forces, GDCA can be widely used to model these complicated multibody systems if it is desired to benefit from the computational advantages of the DCA.
