Course unit title: Computer Simulation of Mechanisms
Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture2 hours weekly (on-site method)
30 hours per semester of study (combined method)
seminar1 hour weekly (on-site method)

Credits allocated: 3
Recommended semester/trimester: Applied Mechanics and Mechatronics - master (semi-compulsory), 3. semester
Level of study: 2.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
The sum of points for the tests is 35. Students will succesfully pass the tests if they earn at least 35 points. Students will get credits for the course if they succesfully pass both, the written tests and the oral exam. Students are graded as follows:
A 100 - 91 points, B 90 - 81 points, C 80 - 71 points, D 70 -61 points, E 50 - 60 points
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The objective provides students with overview about computer aided design, analysis and optimization of virtual prototype and its verification in program MSC.ADAMS/View. Students will be acquainted with procedure how parameterize model, how model geometric and kinematic constraints, how manipulate with active, friction, and contact forces, how include measures and sensors into model. Students will be familiar how to control work of optimization algorithms Design Study, Design of Experiments and A/Solver. Further they obtain information about theoretical background of function of algorithms of modules A/Flex, A/Vibration, A/Insight a A/Controls and during seminars they absolve practical samples of their application for design and optimization of future products.
Course contents:
Representation of virtual model and mathematic background of activities of algorithms of numeric analyses in modules of program MD.ADAMS. Design of virtual models of mechanisms, detection and remove of incorrect properties (redundancies, singularities, passivity), interactive control of numeric simulations. Design of drivelines by inverse dynamic analysis. Analysis of influence of compliant properties of links in mechanisms. Determination of eigen-frequencies by FFT method, vibration analysis of linearized dynamic system in time and frequency domain. Design of PID regulators for control of driving mechanism and how to run co-simulation of programs MD.ADAMS and MATLAB. Application of optimization methods for synthesis of gear and cam mechanisms. Samples of use of simulations in design of cars, production machines, aircraft, trains, earth shaping machines and consumer electronics.
