Quarter car suspension simulation using SolidThinking Activate

Quarter car suspension simulation using SolidThinking Activate

In the previous tutorial we have seen how you can create a 1d model of typical spring damper and simulate it dynamically either by using the differential equations or by transfer function through SolidThinking Activate (or by Simulink). Here we will see how to simulate a simplified suspension system of a quarter car model. TheRead more about Quarter car suspension simulation using SolidThinking Activate[…]

Modeling Single Input Single Output System using SolidThinking Activate

Modeling Single Input Single Output System using SolidThinking Activate

Few weeks back SolidThinking Activate (equivalent to Matlab Simulink) is released under its math and system modelling portfolio. Being a Simulink user thought of exploring it with the classical spring and damper system, a single input single output (SISO) system. The system   Image source: wiki   Where, m = 1 kg; k = 1Read more about Modeling Single Input Single Output System using SolidThinking Activate[…]

Do Value Engineering Upfront, Right at Design Stage

Typically the value engineering (VA/VE) practices take already designed, validated and productionised components and apply the VA/VE methodologies to increase the value of the product either by reducing cost (weight) or increasing functionality.   What if we, the designers or design engineers, could do the value enhancement of the product at virtual concept design stageRead more about Do Value Engineering Upfront, Right at Design Stage[…]
