OSMEC. Computer-aided linkage design: installation.
Abstract:This Data Item describes the installation details, hardware requirements and configuration details for OSMEC, a general-purpose mechanism design program. The configuration details of associated printers and plotters is also provided. OSMEC can model plane mechanisms composed of links, pivoted and sliding joints, gear trains, springs and cam-driven mechanisms and can interface with the cam design program OSCAM. The program is menu driven, has extensive on-line help and can b used to design mechanisms for applications involving high speeds and large forces. An extensive library of mechanism models representing the majority of planar linkages found in practice is provided. The relevant model may be easily edited to representing the user's own mechanism. A user manual for OSMEC is described in an associated ESDU 97026 and examples that provide insight into the application of the OSMEC software are detailed in ESDU 98023.
