Analysis

Analysis Results

Once the mechanism has been constructed and the inputs have been defined any of the following kinematic quantities can be calculated (all relative or absolute):

  • nodal position, displacement, velocity, acceleration
  • angles, angular velocity and acceleration

Furthermore SAM can perform force-analysis, thus enabling the calculation of:

  • driving torque (force)
  • reaction forces in bearings
  • internal forces in elements
  • required or transmitted power

User defined results (SAM Professional)
A sophisticated formula parser offers the possibility to combine simulation results in multiple ways to
derive user defined results. User defined results may also be displayed as curves in the graph.
