In this tutorial, a quick and basic overview of the most important features of the kinematics software ASOM v7 is given, using a multi-bar linkage as an example.
The example project contains a four-bar (4bar) linkage as mechanism for a tailgate. With the aid of this example, we (briefly) illustrate subjects like simulation, calculation, animation and the synthesis of multi-bar linkages. A gas spring is used. Multiple ambient temperatures are considered. Under consideration of friction in the gas spring, certain measurements in the project are calculated in a direction-dependent way.
