AbstractIn many applications the location of the centre of gravity of a mechanical part is an important factor that a designer must consider. If it is not in a desired location, a part might not work properly, e.g. unbalanced force might be generated in a rotational part. After a part is modeled, its centre of gravity cannot be altered unless its external shape or internal mass distribution is changed. However, the external shape is usually constrained by other design considerations. In this paper, an algorithm is proposed for controlling the centre of gravity of a hollowed part. Using this algorithm, the location of the centre of gravity of a part is controlled by changing its internal mass distribution. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
