This example video shows how a typical umbrella can be modeled and analyzed kinematically in ASOMmini. The umbrella is opened automatically by a pressure spring, which is installed between the two movable sliders.
In this video the example of a typical umbrella is used to demonstrate how to purposefully create variations of a kinematic system in ASOM in order to find better solutions. For this purpose not only single elements but also groups of elements can be moved together, if necessary also restricted to only the X or […]
Use the new manual force element in ASOMmini (version 1.1 and higher) to see in real time how the necessary manual force to drive your system with its pre-defined motion profile develops while changes are made.
Basic example for the kinematics of a rear spoiler with masses, forces and bearing friction.
Example for a pedestrian-protection kinematic with a four bar system and an actuator.
Example for the design of a kinematic mechanism for a flush-mounted retractable door handle with kinematic synthesis of two kinematic systems (serial connection of two synthesis methods). Forces and torques are considered in various alternative cases simultaneously, also taking into account further restrictions such as mounting conditions and collision conditions.
In this tutorial some first basics on the use of the interactive synthesis features in the kinematics software ASOM v7 are presented.
In this tutorial the kinematics software ASOM v7 is used to create and animate simple plane linkages, like a one-bar, four-bar or slider-crank system, but also a planetary gear and a rack-and-pinion.
