ADAMS-Based Braking System of a Tracked Vehicle to Optimize Mechanical Linkage Design

Abstract:

Article Preview

A certain new type of tracked vehicle has exposed the problem of insufficient braking force. Especially when tracked vehicle climbing the ramp, insufficient braking force is very harmful .The brake problem to a large extent affect the driving and mobility performance of the tracked vehicle .In this paper, using Pro/Engineer software to create braking system of a tracked vehicle mechanical linkage virtual prototype. And through the mech/pro interfaces the virtual prototype into ADAMS and is put up for dynamic analysis. On the basis of the kinematic analysis of the mechanical linkage, the link length of mechanical linkage was optimized to improve the braking force and obtain better optimization results.
