What will you do in this project?

In this project, you will work on a simulation of the closing of a car's trunk lid

  • Create the necessary four bar mechanism, which aids the required closing operation
  • Import the CAD components required for this simulation
  • Using a motion curve to determine the motion of the mechanism
  • Incorporate collision detection algorithm to find out the time step at which the lid closes entirely

  • Four bar Mechanism
  • Importing BIW components
  • Simulation of the motion
  • Post-processing using Hyperview and Hypergraph

Project Highlights

Low difficulty

This project will be useful for under graduate students interested in the domain of Multibody Dynamics,

You need to have a fundamental understanding in the domain of MBD

You need to understand the working of Motionview/Motionsolve

You will be using Altair Motionview/Motionsolve

You should be having the recent version of Altair Hyperworks

You can request a trial of the software in Altair's website

The domain of Multibody Dynamics

Multibody Dynamics is a field of Mechanical engineering where you will be studying the motion characteristics of a particular component/mechanism.
You will compute the motion of the component and analyse it for feasibility and resultant forces/motion. This will help you in visualising the real life operations of a particular product.
It will also help you understand the behaviour of the component under loading

  • You will create a mechanism which helps in enabling the trunk lid motion
  • You will import the BIW components of the trunk and define it with respect to the mechanism created
  • You will define the motion with the help of a curve and use collision detection to make sure the lid doesn't move after closing is done
  • You will simulate the motion and post-process the results to check the correctness of the motion


Frequently Asked Questions

1How is this project going to help me?

SKILL-LYNC projects are mapped closely with what industry expects. When you work on a SKILL-LYNC project and publish it in your profile, recruiters are automatically notified about your profile.  Your project submissions are graded so that students can get critical feedback on your work

2Can I add this project in my resume?

You bet!

3What are the pre-requisites for this project?

  • A few premium projects might require a prior understanding of fundamental concepts
  • In such a case, you will be given access to appropriate learning materials to first learn those concepts before jumping to the project
