Biomechanical Model of the Human Body in a Sitting Posture

The dynamic response of a human body in any vibration environment can be predicted using this biomechanical model. In the automobile industry for instance, this model can be used in ride quality simulation and designing vibration isolators such as seats. In this example, a biomechanical model of the human body is developed to evaluate the dynamic response to the vertical vibrations in a ...

Rolling of a Rigid Wheel

The purpose of this model is to demonstrate pure rolling of a rigid wheel when given initial forward velocity together with lean about the forward direction. This is implemented through the Multibody dynamics module in COMSOL Multiphysics. The rolling motion of the wheel has been implemented without the use of contact.

Simulation of Shock Absorber in Landing Gear

This model simulates the dynamics of the shock absorber used in a landing gear mechanism of an aircraft. It analyses the stresses, as well as the heat generated in the landing gear components due to the energy dissipated in the shock absorber. A prismatic joint, with spring and damper, is used to model the shock absorber assembly.

Centrifugal Governor Simulator

Centrifugal governors, a specific type of governor, control the speed of an engine by regulating the amount of admitted fuel. In order to maintain a near-constant speed, regardless of the load or fuel supply conditions, centrifugal governors use the principle of proportional control. While the governor is in operation, it is critical that it quickly reaches a new steady-state configuration. ...

Mechanics of a Golf Swing

How well you can strike a golf ball is not only determined by your muscle strength, but more importantly it is influenced by the mechanics of golf swing. The outcome of golf stroke is basically determined by the movement of the club head just prior to the impact with the ball. In this example, a multibody analysis of a golf swing is performed. Aim of the analysis is to maximize the club head ...

Walking Instability in a Washing Machine

Walking instability, due to non-uniform distribution of clothes, is a common problem in lightweight portable washing machines. This problem is more severe in horizontal-axis washing machines, which are more popular because of their high efficiency in spite of high manufacturing cost. This model simulates a simplified model of a horizontal-axis portable washing machine and predicts the verge of ...

Vibrations in a Compound Gear Train

This model simulates vibrations in a compound gear train. Spur gears, used to model the gear train, are mounted on rigid shafts. The shafts are supported by an elastic housing at both ends. The gear mesh is assumed to be elastic with varying stiffness, which is the source of vibration. A transient analysis is performed to compute the dynamics of the gears as well as the vibrations in the ...

Truck Mounted Crane Analyzer

Many trucks are equipped with cranes for handling loads. Such cranes have a number of hydraulic cylinders that control the motion of the crane. These cylinders and other components that make up the crane are subjected to large forces when handling heavy loads. In order to determine the load-carrying capacity of the crane, these forces must be computed. In the Truck-Mounted Crane Analyzer app, a ...

Shift into gear

This model demonstrates the ability to simulate Multibody Dynamics in COMSOL. It comprises a multilink mechanism that is used in an antique automobile as a gearshift lever. It was created out of curiosity to find out how large forces are on the individual components. The model uses flexible parts, i.e. the Structural Mechanics Module was used along with the Multibody Dynamics Module.

Optimization of a Crane Link Mechanism

In complex mechanical systems, it can be challenging to find an optimal (or even good enough) solution only through engineering insight or trial-and-error procedures. Using mathematical optimization methods can then be an efficient path to a better design. In this example, a link mechanism in a crane modeled in the Multibody Dynamics Module is optimized using the Optimization Module. The target ...
