Hi, I'm a final year student currently undergoing a final year project about lower arm suspension. I'm still new to this software and I'm hoping that you guys can help. After I've optimized my lower arm suspension by minimization of its mass, it says design violation and it had shown me my original factor Of Safety 2.1. Does it mean it needs to be higher or lower? Or did I do something wrong in applying the force? grtab.stmod
Hi everyone, I'm trying to get results from Hiperview and I only know basic functionalities. I need to calculate a factor of safety for laminated composite, but for TsaiWu or Hoffman, the factor of safety is not straight forward and need to be computed with the stress values. I dig a little bit and found the TsaiWu reserve factor on the derived result in the composite library as TsaiWuRF. I need to apply this and would like to do the same with the Hoffman criteria. Can anybody explain me how to get the stress table, set table, ply table and whatever is necessary to use this function? Or give me a tutorial which would explain me this. Thank you very much, Best regards, Gonçalo
Hallo, I am having a model of bicycle pedal crank in which I want to apply loads on the pedal ( on the created node). If we take the pedal goes 360degree I want to split the 360 into some lets take 18 steps so I have to create 20 load cases. I considered when the pedal is at top as Top dead center ( TDC) and when it is at bottom Bottom dead center (BDC). The load which i apply on the tdc is high and when it goes bdc it gets reduce and again to complete one cycle the load goes load just like the real case of pedaling the cycle. I can manually calculate each load case Fx,Fy and Fz component and give accordingly for 20 steps. My question : Is there any other way that giving initial load that is load at TDC Fx,Fy and Fz value and the next consecutive load cases for the next 20 degree, then 40 degree and so on the value has to decrease ? , Because for 20 steps we can calculate what if there is a component with 1000 loadsteps. the values of Fx,Fy and Fz cant be calculated manually it will make the person frustrated. So there has to be a way as a factor ( with this initial factor the consecutive load has to change either decrese or increase). Is there a way to give a initial factor or way to implement all other corresponding loads ? It would be much appreiciated if I get any positive response . I have attached a sample pic of my model with just 4 load cases with certain angle apart. It was easy to do by calcualting Fx,Fy and Fz values. But if i want to implement more loads by dividing 360 by so and so ... Thanks in advance for the response. Kind Regards, Muthu,.
