simulation of a mechanism...
I am studying Mechanical Engineering and i have to solve and simulate
a specific mechanism. Actually, i solved the mechanism and the m file
is below! But unfortunately i can't simulate it.
teta2 is an angle which is given by me and is turning from 1 to 360
degrees and the program calculates the necessary results according to
that angle. Lenghts are known. All i have to do is make the joint
points and draw them. But i have no clue how to do it! If you can't
find the solution please least give me the directions how to draw a
line frow known 2 points.
ps: This program includes ju...mechanical system simulation
Dear Ptolemy users,
I recently installed Ptolemy. I am interested in the simulation of
I started by modelling the equations of a damped mechanical oscillator
subject to an external force, which I modelled using a CurrentTime actor
and an Expression actor, in my case an exponential impulse. This example
Now, I would like to substitute the exponential impulse by a more
complex, arbitrary, waveform of the external force. My idea is to use a
piece-wise linear waveform that I could modify to resemble a realistic

Our company is in the process of adopting Solidworks. We are about
to purchase some new computers for this with the following specs;
-Dell optiPlex GX280 SMT
with Int Broadcom=AE GbNIC Intel=AE Pentium=AE 4
Processor 550 (3.40GHz, 1M, 800MHz FSB) 34GT
-Memory; 2.0GB DDR2 Non-ECC SDRAM,533MHz, (2DIMM) 2G2N52
-video; NVIDIA QUADRO FX 1300 with 128meg DDR memory on PCI express
We are also strongly considering using Cosmos Motion in the future. I
recall reading that there is no significant benefit to using
dual-processors for Solidworks. Therefore the money is better put
towards more and f...2d creature locomotion simulation
I want to locomote artificial creatures that are made of joints and
links (their quantity may vary). The worId of the creatures is 2d, for
simplicity and convenience to plot. I have searched the net so long,
but I could not find any way or any method that performs this task.
There are many papers and sources telling that they've achieved this by
calculating torques (and so on), but unfortunately none of them tell
how they achieved.
Guess the creature is at origin and wants to reach the target
coordinates. It's a tree like structure, made up of joints and links. I
want to utili...how to simulate 2d motion controler
i am doing my project on two dimensional motion controller
i want to simulate it using matlab's simulink fascility
can anybody share me some idea
...trying to simulate 2d with 3d. How?
I'm trying to draw a box that will fit the boundaries of the client
area of a window using opengl and
gluPerspective( 45.0f, aspect, zNear, zFar);
where aspect = clientrect.right / clientrect.bottom
zNear = .1 and zFar = 10000.0
If I have a box defined as the same size as the window's client
rectangle (but shifte so that it's center is the center of opengl's
coordinate system), is there a way to find out what z-distance to draw
the box so that it just fills the screen? I'm trying to draw some
things inside this box, so that it looks like it is drawn in 2d
instead of 3d. I...The uses of 2D fluid simulations
I am just curious if any of you know of any uses for 2D fluid simulations on
the graphics world. I already have the following. I'm writing a paper on the
subject, and we have our own specific uses for it, mainly, to simulate a slice
of a symmetric object, and then extrapolate to 3D). But I am trying to think
of others. So can anyone suggest others? And, if possible, references to work
that has been done and published would be great.
We did think of another use: time-varying texture synthesis. However, we
couldn't find much on the subject.

Assuming a wheel is rotating on a slip-proof curved surface in 2D. Im
converting the angular acceleration to linear acceleration , but what is the
direction of the linear acceleration? Is it parallel to the tangent of the
surface at the contact point?

I don't know much about electromechanical systems, but here are
You might find the SigmaDelta example in
to be of interest.
Ptolemy II has a GR domain that is great for visualizing
The bouncing ball demos and the Newton's cradle demos could b of interest.
We've been doing a certain amount of work involving Zeno conditions,
hopefully more of that work will appear later.
