Finite Element Analysis for the Structural Design Whitepaper
12 page whitepaper analyzing finite element for the structural design using computer-aided design.
For the structural engineer, using finite element analysis is a substantial advantage. The design of the structures may also require the use of this approach; advanced analysis. Structural components by nature involve quite a lot of requirements and concerns. Thought needs to go into reliability, safety, cost, and stiffness. Along with this are the extra design requirements of manufacturability, function, and interference.
Generally, classical calculation methods have always been used as the main tool for checking up on the strength characteristics of structures. If you use these traditional calculation methods over and over again, they can have limitations with regards to the fit to the design geometry. If instead you decide to try finite element modeling as your main analysis tool, the limitations of creativity are taken away. All requirements are now able to be evaluated, and more variations of the design concept are able to be taken into consideration.
You can also use this model to efficiently assess the stiffness and strength as well as the material usage of the component. The case example you're about to see involves evaluating a transfer feed vertical post.
This piece has been pointed out as an essential machine component of the transfer feed.The transfer feed mechanism can be described as a 3 axis device that will automatically load a big transfer press that will form outer panels of a car or of a van.
If this component has a stress failure it would be a disaster. As well as this, it's essential to take into consideration the stiffness of the component for accurately positioning the panels in the dies.
