Multidisciplinary Workflow to Assess Modal Fatigue Results of a 4-Cylinder Crankshaft with EXCITE-OPTISTRUCT-FEMFAT

The crankshaft of an engine is a highly dynamically loaded component that is continuously optimized and optimized in terms of design and production technology. In order to be able to reproduce this in the simulation, the essential influences must be considered. This includes the dynamically behaviour in combination with the engine, the material properties and the application of the loads and their transfer to other parts (bearings). The modal approach has established itself as a proven method here, whereby a modal basis is determined in the FEM so that the crankshaft is integrated as a flexible body in the MKS model of the engine, and so that an entire engine run-up can be simulated. The modal participation factors are obtained from the MBS simulation, which are used together with the modal stresses for the safety factor calculation. This workflow requires the combination of different simulation tools. The challenge is to organize the data transfer between the tools efficient and correct. In this example, the workflow is realized using Optistruct from ALTAIR for FEM calculation, EXCITE from AVL as MKS tool and FEMFAT from ECS as Fatigue solver. This makes it possible to simulate a complex engine run-up with consideration of the ignition bearing forces and to calculate the fatigue life of the crankshaft in FEMFAT. This live webinar, details of the simulation workflow of the 4 cylinder crankshaft will be presented and the effects of several influencing variables on the fatigue life will be studied.

Simulation of Cavitating Flows and Gas Bubble Transport with DSHplus

The occurrence of cavitation negatively affects the performance of hydraulic systems. The impairments range from increased noise levels to severe and life-limiting wear of machine parts. Cavitation in hydraulic systems can be prevented by early integration of one-dimensional fluid power simulation software into the design process. In this webinar, FLUIDON’s piping expert “RohrLEx” explains how cavitating flows can be simulated with the updated component models of DSHplus. The improved models enable the user to analyze all relevant types of cavitation – vapor cavitation, gas cavitation and pseudo-cavitation – as well as the associated phenomenon of gas bubble transport. To illustrate the workflow when simulating a cavitation-endangered and/or gas conveying system with DSHplus, two exemplary cases are presented and discussed.

Concept Design for Plastic Parts - Better and Earlier Decisions with CAE Driven Design

Traditionally, products are created with a draft, which is then specified by taking into account external factors. The next step is to validate, test them as prototypes and adapt the design. If simulation is used as a virtual test, this cycle can be accelerated. The foundation for a successful design is set in the concept phase. This raises the question of how simulation can be used as a motor for creative solutions and how it can be used as a groundbreaking basis for decision-making in the early phase of product development. With the simulation-driven design approach, you can achieve early design maturity, efficient material utilization and shorter development times in the development of complex plastic components. Using the example of a front-end module, Code Product Solutions and Altair will demonstrate efficient product development in the recording "Concept Design for Plastic Parts".
