Next he <br />can make it animating. There is a Hamilton mechanics task <br />solved on each animation step. For solving differential <br />equations I used Runge-Kutta 4th<br /> order method. While <br />animating user can change error of rod’s length (normal <br />probabilistic distribution), or change another parameters and <br />see how does it influence mechanical system on charts.<br /><br />The mechanics of the system and numerical solution has been explained at my blog: <br />http://cadcammodelling.wordpress.com/2011/02/14/piston-animation-using-hamiltonian-mechanics/<br /><br /></div><div class="ClearBoth"></div>gponeSat, 04 Feb 2012 10:18:48 GMTUpdated Wiki: Home 20120204101848AUpdated Wiki: Homehttp://piston.codeplex.com/wikipage?version=3<div class="wikidoc"><b>Project Description</b><br />The aim of this project was to perform real-world like <br />animation, perform numerically controlled steering and <br />discover how small distortions influence mechanical system. <br />There is a piston and user sets its initial properties like initial <br />angular velocity, piston mass, rod mass, wheel’s mass.
