1) Right-click on the Stone and choose Part:Stone and then click on Measure.
2) In the Measure Name text box enter Displacement, for the Characteristic select CM position, for the Component choose Y. Make sure that Create Strip Chart is checked then click OK.
3) A measure stripchart appears. It is empty because you need to run a simulation before Adams/View has the necessary information for the stripchart.
4) For more Measurements follow the instructions above and set Measure Name to Velocity and Acceleration, and Characteristic to CM velocity and CM acceleration.
1) Select the Zoom tool, and then click and drag the mouse to the zoom out until the entire working grid is visible.
2) Select the Translate tool, and then drag the working grid to the top of the screen.
3) In the Main Toolbox, select the Simulation tool.
4) In the End Time text box, enter 1.0 and in the Steps text box, enter 50.
5) Select the Play tool and when the simulation ends, reset the model by selecting the Reset tool.
1) To find the Stone's Displacement after 1 second, first right-click the blank area inside the stripchart, then choose Plot:scht1 then click on Transfer To Full Plot.
2) In Adams/Postprocessor, from the main toolbar, select the Plot Tracking tool.
3) Because you want to know the final conditions after 1 second, move the cursor over the end point of the plot. In the area below the menu bar, the value of X is displayed as 1. Note the value of Y is -4903.
- To find the disatance, use y = - (1/2) gt2
- Substitute: g = 9810 mm/s2 , t= 1 s, in the above equation.
- y = - 4905
- The results produced by Adams View is - 4903, this shows that the stone is traveling 4903 mm in the negative y direction. The hand calculated answer and the Adams/View generated answer has a 0.04% difference.
