Abstract:

The computer aided Mobile System Design project MSD for devising improved mobile communications-electronics C-E sheltervehicular configurations analysis capability has been divided into four problem-oriented study tasks. This report documents Transport and Mobility Layout for this design area and discusses some of the program features for effective CAD. The MSD set of programs, implemented on the MEDEA Interactive Design Terminal allows the designer to use interactive graphics to accomplish dynamic placement of equipment in a shelter or vehicle. Given such sheltervehicle and equipment inputs as name or ID, weight, dimensions and center of gravity coordinates, the program determines the center of gravity of the equipment assembly and tests for compliance with weight distribution and lateral stability requirements of ECOM Technical Requirement SCL-1280D. The program outputs 1 Weight, center of gravity coordinates and moment for each equipment, 2 Combined weight and center of gravity coordinates, 3 Percent lateral stability and overweight and 4 Planview, curbside, roadside, and perspective views.
