This Flowcode add-on pack can be added to any academic Flowcode 7 license to give three simulations within Flowcode as well as useful worksheets for students studying aerospace engineering, manufacturing engineering and mechanical engineering.
AVIATION ENGINEERING SIMULATION PACK
Developed for Aerospace engineering students who want to study programming of microcontroller or PLC based systems and includes a 3D model of pneumatically powered landing gear controlled by three pneumatic pistons and position sensors. Students study the system in three separate stages: piston control, safety and system control.
- Full 3D simulation of A320 landing gear
- Staged design introduces students to topics one at a time
- Motivating context for studying microcontroller use in Aerospace
MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING SIMULATION PACK
Developed for manufacturing engineering students who want to understand how microcontroller based systems are used to control CNC machines. The simulation makes use of a virtual 3 axis CNC machine which can be programmed and moved on screen. Students are tasked with first creating a simple linear G code protocol that can be used to control the machine's movement and then creating programs to 'execute' a sequence of G code instructions and move the machine accordingly.
- Stepper motor control of machines
- G code command construction
- Simple G and M code protocol
- CNC machine operation using G codes
MECHANICAL/AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING SIMULATION PACK
Developed for mechanical engineering students who want to study programming of microcontroller or PLC based systems. The pack includes a simulation of a fully working car seat controlled by 3 motors with linear actuators. Students study this system in four separate stages: rotational to linear conversion, encoders and end stops, 3D control with 3 motors, position and memory control.
- Motor speed control
- Linear control of mechanical systems using motors
- Electromechanical system design and control
Please note, all three simulation packs are supplied. Please contact us to order your Flowcode add-on license and then download the worksheets from our resources page.
