Ansys Analysis Question (Robot On The Ramp)

Ansys Analysis Question (Robot On The Ramp)

Ansys Analysis Question (Robot On The Ramp)

Hi all,

I have a analysis as shown in the figure below;

[img https://gm1.ggpht.com/YGetE6diR4sfllJ4AnzV8n_O5h3l...]
In this figure, 2 wheel robot will climb the hill with specified velocity according to the road shape (Wheels must follow the path). According to the climbing speed, if necessary on given speed, it will jump from the hill.

How can i model this situtation?

Thanks for help.

RE: Ansys Analysis Question (Robot On The Ramp)

The page loads an error. However, from what you describe, you could use a kinematics tool. I know SOLIDWORKS Motion can do something like this.

RE: Ansys Analysis Question (Robot On The Ramp)

agreed. this is more about installed power and effective traction (ie can the robot's drive system transfer enough power to the ground to allow the robot to climb the incline at the minimum speed specified ?) it could get nasty if the climb path includes hair-pin turns. of course, there are a host of issues with stability of the robot whilst it's doing this.

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?
