Dynamic Properties of Hydraulic Excavator’s Simulation and Analysis Based on ADAMS


Article Preview

This paper used Pro/E and ADAMS to build the virtual prototype of a hydraulic excavator. After the co-simulation, which joined ADAMS with Pro/E, forces of the bucket’s joints were recorded. This study succeeded in the application of Virtual Prototyping Technology and laid a basis for further studies of the excavator.
