DO:4.4 MASS PROPERTIES

 

• A Numerical integration may be done on the geometry of a part by examining its components. From this mass, Polar and Cartesian moments of inertia, and centre of mass may be determined.

 

• An approximate division of space is often used called oct-trees. In this case the volume of the object is recursively broken down into finite parts. Other methods use an even division of space.

 

 

• Is most successful with solids models.
