I have been trying to find a way to input equations of motion into solidworks motion, Tried the solidworks help manual and it does have a section on equations of motion, but not how to input them.
Can anyone help me here?
It has all the equations of motion (well the newtonian ones at any rate) like F=ma, gravity, coriolis, friction, etc. What do you need it to? JUst stick and object in an assembly and watch it fall or build a cannon and give the ball a force and watch theball go on a parabolic trip? Add aero drag by caturing the velocity and compute a retarding drag force.....
I would like to input yaw and roll somehow. I am simulating a vehicle going around a corner. Have built a model that resembles a vehicle but now need to define how it behaves somehow
Put in a suspension system and it will roll accordning to the spring rates and accerlation from the cornering.
what do you mean "input yaw and roll"? i think someone (maybe you) asked this question in another posting and that was the output you were looking for. are you looking to input something or output something?
Yes this was me in that other question, haven't made any progress since the last post.
Will try to clarify this as I am very begginner when it comes to solidworks and motion studies. My objective is to compare real vehicle roll and yaw determined from numerical angles and equations to the output from a solidworks model.
however I am unsure as to how I get the model to show those particular outputs. I have added springs etc and ran the calculation......but the only outputs I could find where things like lateral velocity and the rest of the standard outputs
Again I may be showing a lack of understanding here but I'm trying to help this by asking questions.
Hope this helps
Those specific parameters that you are looking for are generated from the standard outputs right?
The software is what you see is what you get. If it doesn't output them directly, output the components and calculate manually in excel. If you're looking for the ability to make a custom output based on the components and an equation, I can't think of a way to do that.
I suspect that you are confusing or conflating analytical equations which describe the problem, commonly in the language of calculus, with numerical methods which solve the problem.
SW MA is a numerical method.
