Publisher description for DYNACAM Student Edition
This program solves the kinematic and dynamic equations for cam-follower systems. Radial, linear, and barrel cams with either translating or oscillating followers can be designed. Roller and flat-faced translating followers can be accommodated on radial cams and roller followers on barrel and linear cams.All of the standard, acceptable, double-dwell cam functions are included such as modified trapezoidal, modified sine, cycloidal, 345 polynomial, and many others. General polynomial functions and B-spline functions can also be designed using any user-specified set of boundary conditions to create custom cams that use multiple, single, or no dwells.External force-time loading functions can be applied to the follower. The pressure angles and radii of curvature are calculated for any user-selected base or prime circle diameter. If the user supplies estimates of the lumped mass, spring constant, and damping of the follower system, the program will calculate the kinetostatic follower force and camshaft torque.
