Study on Drive Characteristic of Multi–Rope Friction Winder Using Functional Virtual Prototyping
The main objective of this study was to model and simulate a reduced three-dimensional (3D) model for researching the hoisting system of a Multi – rope Friction Winder. By introducing the relative nodal method, the simplified dynamic equations have been derived via the virtual work principle and validated on a virtual prototype with the RecurDyn software package. Kinematics and dynamics characteristic date are obtained by computer-aided dynamic simulation of virtual Multi – rope friction winder. The result is in accord with theoretical analysis. The research work will provide a powerful tool and useful method for the design of economic and credible elevator system. The approach can be generalized to analysis other flexible drive fields.
