2. The muscles used are not as isolated as advertised.
This analysis sets to prove and quantify this. 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

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
