CAD files for the Swing to measure the Centre of Gravity and Moment of Inertia

Dataset

Abstract

The dataset provides the CAD files describing the swing, which is available in FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility. The described experimental setup can be used to measure the centre of gravity and the moment of inertia with one degree of freedom. The swing is supported by two movable frames. Two different pivot axes are available and the measurement process as well as the analysis is presented in a separate paper. The provided files allow to check how a potential model can be placed on the swing and supports the usage of this device. Four different types of files are available: IGES (igs), ACIS (sat), STL Stereolithography (stl) and Rhinoceros (3dm). The geometry was constructed in mm.
