MechGen Suspension is our latest iPad app. It is an ambitious design system for an independent suspension. The designer specifies the vehicle geometry, lower control arm, the wheel movement and camber gain. The system designs the upper control arm. If this is of interest, please contact me.
MechGen FG is now on the iPhone, thanks to the excellent work by Jeff Glabe and Kaustubh Sonawale.
As preparations continue for the 2015 UCI Energy Invitational, here is a reminder of last year’s event.
UCI’s 2015 race team at the Winter Design Review. On the left is Zeta an all-electric Formula SAE racecar that will compete at the UCI Energy Invitational, and on the right is Savage which is a combustion engine driven FSAE racecar that will compete at FSAE Lincoln in Nebraska
The 2015 UCI Energy Invitational is scheduled for May 24, 2015 on UCI’s campus. Please have your raceteam contact Tanya Eberhard at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to you joining us.
This is a little more compact version of the six-bar folding linkage that Kaustubh Sonawale found using MechGen 3.0.
This six-bar linkage was designed to deploy and stow a structure. It was developed by Kaustubh Sonawale to demonstrate the capabilities of MechGen 3.0.
This port closure tool curls back on itself to provide internal stitches to close a trocar port used for non-invasive surgery. This is the result of a collaboration between Kaustubh Sonawale and Jon Stokes.
Select this link, Four-bar linkages, for a Geogebra book that illustrates linkages ranging from a lever to a crank-rocker that open a door. This includes the construction of a four-bar linkage that coordinates the open and closed positions with specific input crank angles, called a four-bar function generator. The iPad application, MechGen FG, computes four-bar function generators for five coordinated values of the input and output cranks.
