Abstract: The force of control column is very important for the pilot in a flight simulator. So the
control loading system in the flight simulator has been concerned since the flight simulator
appeared. As the force command signal generated part of control loading system, flight control
system module is the most important module for the fidelity of control loading system. This paper
described a method to build flight control module. We used SimMechanics in simulink to model
and analyze the feel and centering unit, which is the key part of feeling system in the flight control
system, and in this paper we described the structure of the control loading system, and the function
of the feel and centering unit.
Abstract: This paper presents an automatic pipe-routing algorithm for pipelines with branches in an
electromechanical product. The algorithm uses chaos theory to establish the chaos grid
pre-processing model (CGPM) that can efficiently pick up solution space and reduce the search
range. A novel particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is developed to seek for an
approximate optimal trajectory in the solution space. Experiments show that the modified PSO
algorithm is effective and efficient. The examples demonstrate that the automatic pipe-routing
algorithm is effective and practical for pipelines with branches.
Abstract: In order to find an optimum assembly sequence in engineering design domain, a
knowledge-based virtual assembly approach was put forward. Virtual assembly design environment
was also introduced, and knowledge representation models for virtual assembly rules and cases are
introduced and studied respectively. A side-center virtual assembly method was applied to avoid the
occurrence of assembly interference. Finally, a case was employed to demonstrate the practicality
of knowledge-based virtual assembly planning.

Abstract: Due to complex process and high difficult operation for large-scale products assembly, the
application of virtual assembly (VA) has an important significance and also an actual value. In this
paper the key techniques of VA for large-scale complex products are proposed, and their assembly
characteristics (such as their organization form, human participation, process planning and
optimization and so on) are analyzed. First, a new virtual environment (VE) system considering
human activities is set up. Second, an integration approach is realized to transform data from CAD to
VA system, and a hybrid method on the basis of virtual reality (VR) and intelligent algorithm is
applied to optimize and evaluate assembly process planning. Moreover, assembly documents
generation and Web training for assembly workers are implemented. Finally, an application case of
the VA system for a complex product is given, and further work is pointed out.
Abstract: Maximally utilizing the capabilities offered by the feed drive systems in the CNC
machining can both increase productivity and improve product quality. In this study, a
framework of off-line feed rate scheduling was presented and a turning machining simulation
and feed rate optimal system was developed. The system take advantage of virtual machining
acquires cutting parameters and predicts cutting forces and cutting power. Constant cutting
power was used as an objective to optimize feed rate, the feed rate in NC program was
re-scheduled. The experiment results show that machining time is reduced and machining
stability is improved by using the optimized NC program.
Abstract: Virtual prototype technology could integrate different CAD formats parts into an digital
model. In this way the design process will be more efficient. This issue reviewed three methods to
transfer data from CAD parts to virtual reality element. And find an efficient way to transfer
different CAD model data to virtual prototype software Division MockUp.
Abstract: Due to big structure and complex process for some large-scale products (such as planes
and rockets), the workers have to try many times and move around in the products to accomplish
the assembly operations for high-precision requirements. Thus, the efficiency is low and the cost is
high in the assembly process. To deal with that, the virtual assembly (VA) system for large-scale
products is developed in this paper. First a new VA environment considering human activity is set
up, and then a hierarchical assembly process list (HAPL) model and a dynamic constraint
recognition algorithm is proposed to realize exact placement for large-scale products in VA system.
Finally, the method is verified by the development VA system which successfully applied in the
process of satellite assembly. Moreover, the method can be used in the common VA systems for
