Kinematic/Dynamic Simulation of Gear System of Tunnel Boring Machine
Gear system of tunnel boring machine is simulated and analyzed in kinematic/dynamic based on virtual prototype to ensure stability in motion process. The three-dimensional model is built by using SolidWorks software and gear system of virtual prototype is simulated by using ADAMS. The angular velocity of gears and force curves between gears and shaft are got by simulation to analyze kinematically and dynamically, so the method can provide reference of dynamic optimization design.
