Multibody Dynamic Analysis of Automobile Wiper Based on Virtual Prototype
Virtual prototype plays an important role in agile designing and manufacturing. Finite Element Analysis and multibody analysis software can also assist engineers with developing and analyzing sophisticated machines. In this paper, a virtual model of an automobile wiper is modeled and used to be simulated under virtual environment of ADAMS, which is a famous tool in mechanical engineering. After simulation, the vibration and noise that the wiper works with have been found and some suggestions are given in discussion and conclusion.
