On the influence of conformity on wheel–rail rolling contact mechanics
The aim of this work is to assess the effects of conformity on local contact related quantities at the wheel–rail interface such as traction distributions, subsurface stresses and frictional work distributions. For this ...
Mechatronic modeling of a parallel kinematics multi-axial simulation table based on decoupling the actuators and manipulator dynamics
In this work a mechatronic model was developed for a parallel Multi-Axial Simulation Table (MAST) mechanism. The dynamics of the mechanism was obtained using the principle of energy equivalence and Boltzmann–Hamel equations. ...
Translational parallel manipulator with Pa2 kinematic joints
The kinematic pair Pa2 is composed of two interlinked parallelograms. It has two degrees of freedom that generate a translational plane variable with position. It has a structure different from the PaPa pair, which is ...
Experimental Validation of the Kinematic Design of 3PRS Compliant Parallel Mechanisms
In this paper, a procedure for the kinematic design of a 3-PRS compliant parallel manipulator of 3 degrees of freedom is proposed. First, under the assumption of small displacements, the solid body kinematics of the 3-PRS ...
