Research for Virtual Prototype Modeling and Simulation of Bridge Crane Based on Pro/E and ADAMS
According to the crane dynamics theory, the dynamical model of a bridge crane's three main mechanisms is established and the dynamical load is determined under different work conditions in the paper. The three-dimensional solid model of the bridge crane is built by Pro/E, and then which is imported in ADAMS through the interface module of Mech/Pro. The virtual prototype model of the bridge crane is formed in ADAMS when relevant constraints and loads are applied. Based on the model, the bridge crane’s kinematics and dynamics performances are simulated and analyzed, and which shows that the simulation results can provide valuable guidances for design of the bridge crane.
