Methods of Cam Structure Optimization Based on Behavioral Modeling
By defining analysis feature and using analysis results to drive the parametric model, behavioral modeling establishes feature parameter of model automatically for meeting design objectives and making model technology intelligent, that is to say the result could be optimized automatically. In this paper, the application of PRO/E parametric modeling technologies in design of cam profile curve is researched. In order to optimization for dynamic balance of the cam, the methods of defining analysis feature and sensitivity/optimization analysis are proposed by using the technology of PRO/E behavioral modeling. These technologies can enhance the efficiency and quality of the cam design and provide a practical method for 3D modeling of this kind of cam. The fifth generation of CAD model technology named behavioral modeling provides the method of flexible and intelligent solution of practical engineering problems.
