Abstract

The presence of the recirculation channel of ball screws is often ignored in literature mathematical models since steady state analyses are usually performed. However, high-fidelity dy- namic models ofthese components should include it to correctly represent the motion of the spheres. This would allow to en- hance the model realism and to use it as a virtual test bench, also for PHM purposes. This paper presents a detailed three- dimensional multibody model developed in the MSC ADAMS en- vironment in order to exploit its capabilities to represent a con- tact between generic arbitrary shaped bodies, such as the re- circulating channel and deflector. Consequently, no ideal con- straints are arbitrarily imposed and the full dynamics of every component is fully described. A first model validation is per- formed extracting the ball passing frequency from the nut axial acceleration signal. Furthermore, the dependence of the load distribution on geometric errors and external force application point eccentricity is investigated.
