Prediction of the Pantograph/Catenary Wear using Nonlinear Multibody System Dynamic Algorithms
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2019-01-10)
n this investigation, computational multibody systems (MBS) algorithms are used to develop detailed railroad vehicle models for the prediction of the wear resulting from the pantograph/catenary dynamic interaction. The ...
CONTINUUM-BASED GEOMETRY/ANALYSIS APPROACH FOR FLEXIBLE AND SOFT ROBOTIC SYSTEMS (FSRS)
(Mary Ann Liebert, 2018-06-29)
Control and stability of flexible and soft robotic systems (FSRS), which have complex geometry and experience desirable and undesirable deformations, are of major concern, particularly when lightweight soft materials are ...
Development and implementation of geometrically accurate reduced-order models: Convergence properties of planar beams
A geometrically accurate infinitesimal-rotation planar beam element is developed and implemented in this study. The performance of the element, which is suited for developing reduced-order models for both structural and ...
Integration of geometry and small and large deformation analysis for vehicle modelling: Chassis, and airless and pneumatic tyre flexibility.
The goal of this study is to propose an approach for developing new and detailed vehicle models that include flexible components with complex geometries, including chassis, and airless and pneumatic tyres with distributed ...
