Friction CVT

Friction CVT

The project aim is to analyze the functionality of a friction continuously variable transmission (CVT). We focused in particular on the comparison of different contact models offered by the software LMS Virtual Lab. Continue reading

Twist Bike Atlantic

Twist Bike Atlantic

Twist Bike Atlantic by Dobertec® is an innovative bike that implements a transmission system similar to that described by Leonardo Da Vinci in the Codex Atlanticus.
The aim of this project is to verify the correct working of the bike transmission, comprehensive of two functioning freewheels, then to perform a test protocol simulating the cyclist’s acceleration by different gearshift velocity ratios.

Electric Scissor Lift

Electric Scissor Lift

In this analysis we want to model an electric scissor lift and see its behavior in different situations, with particular attention to the oscillations that can result when it works in movement. Continue reading

Edyson CVT – Gearbox continuously variable transmission

Edyson CVT – Gearbox continuously variable transmission

This project aim is simulating the behavior of “Edyson CVT”, a continuously variable transmission which uses only mechanical elements. CVT is a gearbox that allows variations in the transmission ratio without any discontinuity in the rotation. Continue reading

CVT Scooter Transmission

CVT Scooter Transmission

The aim of the project is the modelling and the simulation of the transmission of a modern average engine capacity scooter using LMS Virtual.Lab. Continue reading
