Systematic study of technical solutions applied for starter motor 2010-36-0033
One traditional solution to start an internal combustion engine
is the starter motor. Little has been changed in its operational
dynamics and conception, even after several design optimization
processes. This fact stems from the absence of application of an
analysis tool capable of showing the existing relations between its
subgroups and the functions performed.
But, once that these relations are explained and the basics
functions are revealed, it is possible to generate a group of new
technical solutions to perform the same functions. In order to
achieve this goal, the present work applied a Morphological
Analysis on the group of functions that is necessary and sufficient
for a starter motor.
The analysis of the Morphological Field revealed the nowadays
trend of technical solutions and some solutions that hasn't
been explored yet. The analysis of those models revealed why they
have been discarded or simply not explored, and makes possible a
systematic change in the concept of the product in order to apply a
significant functional and technical optimization.
