SAM linkage design optimization & simulation software
SAM (Synthesis and Analysis of Mechanisms) is an interactive PC-software package from the Dutch company ARTAS-Engineering Software for the design, analysis (motion and force) and optimization of arbitrary planar mechanisms. Mechanisms can either be generated via the design wizards or they can be assembled from basic components including beams, sliders, gears, belts, springs, dampers and friction elements. SAM integrates pre-processing, numerical analysis and post processing, such as animation and xy-plots, in an easy to-use environment offering pull-down menus, mouse support and help facilities.
