Abstract

The paper presents the results of research for load lifting process for a single pneumatic cushion. The load lifting process has been simulated in SolidWorks Simulation using the model of Mooney-Rivlin for hyper-elastic material. Research was conducted based on a simplified 3D model and drawn up a mathematical model of pneumatic cushions determining of non-linear static characteristics for the lifting height depending on the weight of the load and supply pressure. The results compare with the results of laboratory tests conducted for the platform equipped with four air cushions.
