Bench press machine

Bench press machine

Renaud Thomassin – These types of machine appeared 50 years ago in the fitness industry. Even if now every gym has them they are thought to mislead the athletes in two ways.
1. The selected weight is inacurate.
2. The muscles used are not as isolated as advertised.
This analysis sets to prove and quantify this. Continue reading

Crane Fork

Crane Fork

In this project a crane fork moved by an overhead travelling crane has been studied. The objective of the projects are: creating a model to extract the reaction forces that the bodies that compose the fork exchange each other and to investigate the role of the springs. Continue reading

Delta robot

Delta robot

Introduction The delta robot is a type of parallel robot introduced by Professor Reymond Clavel in 1986. The motors are fixed to ground and the moving parts are kept light as possible in order to have a high robot velocity and … Continue reading

Forest trailer with loader

Forest trailer with loader

In this project a forest trailer with attached loader is studied. Starting from the CAD models realized, the range of movement of the crane and grapple is verified. Actuator loads are measured during trunk load under limit conditions. In addition, trailer dynamics are introduced in relation to the ground to study its effects. Finally, the risk of overturning the trailer during loading will be assessed. Continue reading

FSAE front suspension

FSAE front suspension

The main topic of this work is to optimize the suspension of a FSAE car in order to design a progressive suspension. Continue reading

Limited Slip Differential (LSD)

Limited Slip Differential (LSD)

Analysis of FSAE Limited Slip Differential: torque distribution, locking torque and delivered torque on ground Continue reading

Motorcycle (PID controlled)

Motorcycle (PID controlled)

Barbetta Luca – barbettaluca1995@gmail.com updated on June 25 , 2019    Introduction A Proportional-Integrative-Derivative (PID) control is a control loop feedback mechanism widely used in industrial control systems and a variety of other applications requiring continuously modulated control. A PID controller continuously calculates an error … Continue reading

Radial engine

Radial engine

This project presents the modelling and simulation of a 5-rod radial engine. The individual elements of the engine were digitized using the process of reverse engineering.
The synchronization of the 5 piston forces to a nearly constant output torque stands in focus of this investigation. Continue reading

Railway pantograph

Railway pantograph

Amedeo Todeschini – amedeo.todeschini@studenti.unipd.it    Introduction The catenary pantograph system is the way to power trains and vehicles that required an amount of electricity for moving. this system needs a stable contact in order to guarantee the supply of energy to the … Continue reading

Ropeway Detachment System

Ropeway Detachment System

My project consists in the analysis of the detachment system of a ropeway. This mechanism disconnects the chairlift/cabin from the cable when the former reaches the station, through the action of guides. Starting from a simplified model based on real geometrical dimensions I have performed some analysis in Adams to get the forces exchanged between the mechanism and the station guides during the detachment phase Continue reading

Rotary Part Handler (Geneva)

Rotary Part Handler (Geneva)

Francesco Belluzzo, francesco.belluzzo@studenti.unipd.it Introduction This multibody system is a simplified type of machinery commonly used in production lines. Its job consists in picking and depositing a product component from one assembly line to another. It can be used for pick … Continue reading

Tire Modelling

Tire Modelling

Josef Bertucco, josef.bertucco@studenti.unipd.it Introduction This project analyses how Adams View studies tire behaviours studying tyres from FSAE. The project begins from “Basic Tyre” project developed during lecture on tire studies.   Objectives verify condition of free/pure rolling of the tire … Continue reading

Torsen Type-A differential

Torsen Type-A differential

MBS of a Torsen Type – A differential to understand its torque splitting capabilities in different scenarios Continue reading

Tourbillon carrousel

Tourbillon carrousel

Alberto Guidolin – alberto.guidolin.1@studenti.unipd.it updated on June, 2019   Introduction The Tourbillon is an addition to the mechanics of a watch escapement and it was patented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1801. The Tourbillon improves the accuracy of mechanical watches, negating … Continue reading

Watt’s Governor (1)

Watt’s Governor (1)

Giangreco Luca – luca.giangreco@studenti.unipd.it Introduction One of the most known centrifugal regulator is Watt’s Governor, a mechanical system capable of adjusting the rotation speed of its shaft according to itself. Watt’s Governor was invented by James Watt and was used … Continue reading

Watt’s Governor (2)

Watt’s Governor (2)

A historical representation based Watt’s governor model is integrated in an engine system in order to discuss the effects that it involves. Continue reading
