This thesis is to develop a standard virtual prototyping system for hydraulic winch system including developing a library of standard sub-models of hydraulic system, mechanical system and control system (AHC), and visualizing the simulation and operation of the virtual winch prototyping system. To be more specific:Chapter 1. Motivation and background of winch prototyping is introduced so as to break down the problems and formulate the objectives of this projects.Chapter 2. Theoretical background is shown in this part. It contains the briefly descriptions of the important theory applied in virtual prototyping winch system.Chapter 3. Methodology is shown in this part. It contains the detailed theory basis applied in the modelling of hydraulic and mechanical sub-systems of winch system.Chapter 4. This chapter describes the implementation of mechanical sub-system. 3D modelling, parameterization and visualization are implemented by using WebGL technology with three.js library. The outcome of the mechanical part can be easily integrated into the virtual prototyping framework.Chapter 5. This chapter elaborates the method and the process of hydraulic and control (AHC) sub-model modelling. Bond graph theory is applied during the modelling process. Different alternatives of hydraulic system structure are analysed and compared to finalize a better solution of hydraulic system structure.Chapter 6: This chapter explains the integration method of virtual prototyping winch system framework.Chapter 7: Results of mechanical modelling, hydraulic with control modelling and co-simulation of integrated virtual prototyping winch system are shown and discussed to evaluate the performance of virtual prototyping system.Chapter 8: This part makes conclusions, modelling alternatives and future work for the virtual prototyping winch system.
