In order to solve the problem of the pipeline inspection and cleaning,combining the 3D modeling software Pro /Eningeer(Pro /E) and the dynamics analysis software RecurDyn,the main model,the track system model of the tracked pipe duct cleaning robot and the road model are built,and the entity assembly in RecurDyn is applied and the simulation model is obtained. The paper carries out the dynamic simulation with the software RecurDyn. The speed,the torque of driving wheel and the vibration-acceleration of gravity of the whole robot in the vertical direction are obtained and analyzed. Finally, the simulation and the calculation results are compared,the two results are basically the same,it has guiding significance for the further study and the potential applications of the tracked pipe duct cleaning robot.
Key words:    tracked pipe duct cleaning robot    RecurDyn    dynamics    simulation model
