Friction cone

Kinematics example: friction cone and self-locking

Basic kinematics example for self-locking under force-dependent friction. Friction occurs between a vertical guideway and a fork with a mass in the center of gravity and two contact points on the guideway. This friction is described in each case by a coefficient of friction or a friction value in the two sliding bearings, which, for

Block and tackle

Basic kinematics example for an idealized block and tackle

Here, a block and tackle is combined with a linear guide. The ratios between stroke and path length and the required forces are computed in compressed time.

Table

Kinematic and kinetostatic analysis of a table being pushed

This example created with the kinematics software ASOMv7 shows how the normal forces in the two table legs change or adapt when a horizontal force is applied to move the table.

Sensor field

Kinetostatic Sensor Field

In this example of a four bar system generated ‘on-the-fly’ multiple manual force curves are determined in real time. The concept is also applicable to other multi-bar systems. The kinematic analysis can be extended, e.g. to the determination of the corresponding bearing forces.
