Category: Computer Aided Design (CAD), Inventor
Overview of Stress Analysis
- Use stress analysis to estimate the deformation, stress, and natural frequencies of your designs
- Understand the stress analysis interface
Preparing and Running a Simulation
- Set up and run a stress analysis
- Add loads and constraints to a model
Viewing the Results
- Understand how to view stress results
- Calculate the deflection and stress for the entire assembly
- Take into account complex load paths and contact conditions between parts
Mesh Control and Convergence
- Control element size, identifying areas that require a finer mesh, and dealing with stress singularities to perform a convergence study
Performing a Modal Analysis
- Apply a load to an assembly to determine the effect on its natural frequencies
Overview of Dynamic Simulation
- Simulate and analyse dynamic characteristics of an assembly under various load conditions
Understand the dynamic simulation interface
- Design mechanical joints between components to simulate dynamic motion
- Create and restrict degrees of freedom in a joint
- Use loads to describe the virtual environment that simulates the reality in which your parts and assemblies behave
- Define torque and motion
Running Simulations and Analysing Results
- Run a simulation to adjust and refine your design
Engineering Problems and Solutions
- At the end of Day 2, you will combine everything you have learned in an application workshop to answer advanced design questions such as:
- What is the machinery time cycle?
- Is the actuator powerful enough?
- Is the link robust enough?
- Can I reduce weight without sacrificing integrity?
