Motion Analysis Includes Hinges, Springs, and More

July 7, 2005
CosmosMotion simulation is updated with mapping functions for geometry mates in the modeling of mechanical joints.

CosmosMotion simulation software lets users apply nonlinear springs and dampers, such as those on automobile shock absorbers.

Mapping functions give engineers a broader palette of ready-to-use mechanism setups for analyzing real problems. An import feature lets SolidWorks user do a first-pass motion analysis using SolidWorks Physical simulation tools, then more advanced motion testing in CosmosMotion. Other features compare results for different simulations, and a flexible joint lets multiple hinges share loads equally for moreconsistent results.
