Here you can find video examples from the field of research and education. They are concerned with topics of a more theoretical nature or illustrate general concepts.
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
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.
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.
Idealized kinematics example with a block that rests on a plane and can be moved with a corresponding actuating force.
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.
