Abstract

In the paper, the authors present construction stages of simulation models worked out using SolidWorks and Matlab/Simulink environments. As examples of simulation models, a laboratory truck crane and a forest crane have been shown. These models allow for visualization of movements, tracking of the trajectory, velocity and acceleration of any point of the system.

Streszczenie

W pracy opisano tok postepowania podczas budowy modeli symulacyjnych z wykorzystaniem programu SolidWorks i Matlab/Simulink. Tworzenie modelu symulacyjnego przebiega etapami, to znaczy najpierw opracowywany jest model geometryczny w programie SolidWorks, nastepnie dzieki mozliwosci wymiany danych, model CAD jest implementowany w srodowisku obliczeniowym Matlab/Simulink. Modele SimMechanics pozwalaja na sledzenie wielu parametrów, np. trajektorii, predkosci, czy przyspieszen dowolnych elementów układu złozonego. W pracy, jako przykłady modeli symulacyjnych opracowanych zgodnie z zaprezentowana metoda, pokazano modele laboratoryjnego zurawia samochodowego oraz zurawia lesnego. Modele te umozliwiaja wizualizacje zadanego - za pomoca wymuszen kinematycznych - cyklu pracy.

Keywords : control system; forest crane; modeling; simulation; truck crane
