Getting started – Mechanical basics

What goes up must come down! Maybe you think a vertical throw of a mass is some 11th grade stuff. But have you thought about what happens when a car hits a pothole? The basic principle is the same. You’ve got a stimulation (pothole) on a mass (car) and therefore it’s moving up and down. Add a spring and a damper and here you have a suspension system of a car.

With our vertical throw tutorial we want to start with some mechanical basics using the Simcenter Amesim Student Edition before going into detail of a specific application. This basic knowledge can be transferred to any mechanical problem you’re facing.
