Frictional Effects on the Dynamics of a Truncated Double-Cone Gravitational Motor

  title={Frictional Effects on the Dynamics of a Truncated Double-Cone Gravitational Motor},
  author={Bogdan Andrei Suciu},
Abstract—In this work, effects of the friction and truncation on the dynamics of a double-cone gravitational motor, self-propelled on a straight V-shaped horizontal rail, are evaluated. Such mechanism has a variable radius of contact, and, on one hand, it is similar to a pulley mechanism that changes the potential energy into the kinetic energy of rotation, but on the other hand, it is similar to a pendulum mechanism that converts the potential energy of the suspended body into the kinetic… CONTINUE READING
