    SolidWorks motion analysis help - Cart motor calculation.

    Heshantha Manupriya


      I'm try to calculate motor torque & power required to drive a cart using SW.

      I have try with motion analysis tool and the result was not practical.


      Following are the details of cart.


      Front two wheels are drive using a single gear motor.

      Wheels and rails are mild steel.

      Wheel diameter-300mm

      Weight of cart- 40 Ton (Approximately).

      Maximum moving speed of cat 0.1m/s.(Wheel move 40 dig/s)

      Within 5 minutes the cart need to reach it maximum linear speed.

      The 3D model attached with motion analysis which i have done. (SW 2018)

      Please highlight what are the mistakes i have done.

      How to get real value.


      Thank you.
