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
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
Barbetta Luca – firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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
Alberto Guidolin – email@example.com 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
