Dynamic simulation can be defined as the detailed description of a mechanical event over time. For example, the dynamic simulation would be used to determine the effects of a collision (i.e.: a drop test) between two objects and its effect on the object’s integrity as a result.
This subset of simulation focuses on the mechanical movement of a device when forces are applied.
Dynamic simulations helps check for collisions and interference within mechanical assemblies.
This takes into account friction, mass, and gravity. In addition, dynamic simulation demonstrates how mechanical parts react when specified forces are applied. This allows our engineers to determine the appropriate geometry necessary to achieve the ideal mechanical output for the design’s intent.
The advantages of dynamic simulations are:
- • Being able to predict part performance in different environments and situations.
- • Visualizing areas of the design that need to be re-engineered, allowing for the engineer to optimize the design for optimal behavior and performance.
- • The ability to validate product behavior before manufacturing in order to reduce the costs associated with creating multiple physical prototypes.
Dynamic simulation can be applied in many industries and functions, including:
- • Industrial Design.
- • Aerospace.
- • Mechanical.
- • Commercial.
- • Dental Modeling.
- • Medical modeling.
