The Opening Mechanism Analysis on Hood, Tail Gate, and Trunk Lid by Mathematical Modeling

The theory and the computer software to analyze the behaviour of moving mechanism(Hood, Tail Gate and Trunk Lid) equiped with the gas lifters or the torsion bars has been developed to figure out what will be the dynamic behaviour of moving mechanism at the design stage. The developed computer software gives the approximated calculation of load-angle characteristics, the velocity, the acceleration and the total opening time so that the designer makes the optimum decision on the location and the strength of panel to which the gas lifters or the torsion bars are mounted.
