Simulation Optimization of a Hydraulic Engine Mount
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154055&ref=Feed
This project uses Maple to achieve an optimal design of a hydraulic engine mount. Initially, a hydraulic absorption mount was built in MapleSim and implemented in a mount test station. By entering the storage parameters, the characteristic curves of dynamic rigidity and angle loss were examined. Additionally, the characteristic curves were calculated from the predetermined frequency response function to validate the model.

Diese Projektarbeit wendet Maple zur Erstellung einer optimalen Auslegung der Motorlagerabstimmung an. Zunächst wurde hierfür ein hydraulisches Tilgerlager in MapleSim aufgebaut und in einen virtuellen Lagerprüfstand implementiert. Durch Eingabe der Lagerparameter können die charakteristischen Kennlinien der dynamischen Steifigkeit und des Verlustwinkels untersucht werden. Zusätzlich können die charakteristischen Kennlinien aus der vorgegebenen Übertragungsfunktion berechnet und zur Validierung des Modells dargestellt werden.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153970&ref=Feed
The Lattice package is a Maple package to design and analyze charged-particle beam lines and circular machines. It employs a beam-line description using the standard elements (dipoles, quadrupoles and so on) and retains the algebraic power of Maple. Beam-line elements are described using the equations governing the particle motion in algebraic form. In this way it is possible to compute expressions for beam-line parameters like Twiss functions, dispersion and such, for beam
lines or rings, and to perform analysis on these expressions using the full power of Maple.<img src="/view.aspx?si=153970/Lattice.png" alt="Lattice: A package to model accelerator lattices and beam lines" align="left"/>The Lattice package is a Maple package to design and analyze charged-particle beam lines and circular machines.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=153608&ref=Feed
<p>The design optimization of helical springs is of considerable engineering interest, and demands strong solvers. While the number of constraints is small, the coil and wire diameters are raised to higher powers; this makes the optimization difficult for gradient-based solvers working in standard floating-point precision; a larger number of working digits is needed.</p>
<p>Maple lets you increase the number of digits used in calculations; hence numerically difficult problems, like this, can be solved.</p>
<p>This application minimizes the mass of a helical spring. The constraints include the minimum deflection, the minimum surge wave frequency and the maximum stress, and a loading condition.</p>
<ul>
<li>the minimum deflection, </li>
<li>the minimum surge wave frequency, </li>

<p>This suspension design tool provides a complete toolbox for design and analyses of the automobile's suspension systems. As the most popular suspension systems layout, the front and rear systems are supposed to be Macpherson and torsion beam respectively. The toolbox can perform complete kinematic analyses of the front and rear suspensions and the results can be viewed using a wide variety of characteristic curves, such as spring deflection, damper deflection, camber by roll, scrub by bump, roll centre position and others. Moreover, it can size the front and rear springs, dampers and anti-roll-bars . In this application, the input parameters can be easily changed, new simulations computed, and plots selected through the use of buttons, drop-down lists, and other interactive elements.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=153486/Suspension_image1.jpg" alt="Suspension Design" align="left"/><p>This suspension design tool provides a complete toolbox for design and analyses of the automobile's suspension systems.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=130788&ref=Feed
A mechanism for actively driving the shooter launch angle with the use of a threaded rod. The idea here is that a support link will be extended from the shooter pivot and attached to the thread of a threaded rod. As the rod rotates, the support connection collar will slide up and down the rod with the threads. This will then pitches the shooter up and down about the pivot.<img src="/view.aspx?si=130788/thumb.jpg" alt="Pitching Mechanism with Threaded Rod" align="left"/>A mechanism for actively driving the shooter launch angle with the use of a threaded rod.

In this case, the launch angle is adjusted through a motor attached to the anchor pivot (located at the bottom of the red colored rods in the screenshots). As the support link (red) is rotated about the anchor pivot, the tip of the support link (red) will slide along the bottom of the shooter. Given a fixed length of the support link, the shooter angle will vary as the tip of the support link slides towards or away from the pivot point.<img src="/view.aspx?si=130787/thumb.jpg" alt="Pitching Mechanism with Slider Support" align="left"/>In this case, the launch angle is adjusted through a motor attached to the anchor pivot (located at the bottom of the red colored rods in the screenshots).
