RecurDyn/Chain automates the process of defining a chain system and supports standard chain entities such as sprockets, rollers (idlers), guide rails and lateral guards. Roller chain and silent chains can be modeled and analyzed in this toolkit.

Benefits

  • Model & simulate sophisticated products quickly
  • Obtain dynamic load history for stress & fatigue analysis
  • Perform "what if" studies in order to refine:
    • sprocket teeth profile design
    • chain link design
    • guide design
  • Study product dynamics:
    • vibration excited by contact with discrete links
    • failure conditions at high speed
  • Design tensioning devices to optimize chain tension.

Features

  • Graphical user interface for fast & easy model generation
  • Library of geometric entities
  • Graphical or spreadsheet design of sprocket teeth profile
  • Automatic chain assembly with automatic contact
  • Efficient contact algorithms
  • Subsystem concept for efficient interaction with other model assemblies, such as in a complete engine model
  • Fast & robust solver
  • Plotting of contact forces and chain tension
