Dynamics Analysis of 6-DOF Platform under the Condition of Unbalanced Force


Article Preview

During the use of 6-DOF(six degrees of freedom) platform the gravity center of force tends to deviate from the center of the upper platform, resulting in six rods are forced unbalanced. This paper firstly introduces the characteristics of the 6-DOF platform, then establishes simulation model of platform through the PRO/E software, and analyses the kinematics of platform by use of the ADAMS (Automatic Dynamics Analysis of Mechanical System) software, finally proceeds with dynamics analysis of six rods in unbalanced condition.Those will get the influence degree of rods under the unbalanced force,and provide some proposal for the rational use of the platform.
