Ship Hydraulic Boom Arm – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Ship Hydraulic Boom Arm

This model shows a hydraulic cylinder raising a ship's boom arm with compliance (in this case, a gas accumulator). The model uses a single frequency force (simulating a wave motion), which can be easily expanded to a frequency sweep to show the resonant frequency.
