Press fit analysis

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

basically I wanted to simulate the pressfit. I dont know if this is the right way to do. I already worked with the basic tutorial existing in website using PCONT card where we define the clearence. In my model there is a clearence already included. So I thought of trying with non-linear quasi static large deformation and I ended with an error. I have attached my model.  Also what is the better way to simulate pressfit ( I want to simulate the complete pressfit process). I have no knowledge with Radioss explicit solver. Please help me.

 

Thanks and regards,

Punith Guptha

Hi Prakash,

I already referred this example. It was not helpful. Can you review my model attached and give me a feedback?

Hello @Prakash Pagadala

first of all, I would like to know if this is the right way to simulate the press fit. My component is basically a axisymmetric component with slight variations. So initially I wanted to work with a small section to reduce the time. Any recommendations would be welcome. How about using Geometrical Nonlinear implicit analysis?. If there is a existing interferrence in the model how to define the clearence when PCONT is used?

Dear punith,

 

can you tell me what you have done till so far?

 

Please do it in  Radioss,

if possible please share presentation showing your objective of the simulation.

or else share model file, i will work on it and will update you.

Dear @Ganesh Munge,

I dont have any knowledge on Radioss till now. I would like to do it in optistruct first. I have already attached my model files in the first message. It is basically a pressfit of two components disc and rim of wheel. To reduce the solver time, I tried initially with a small crosssection as my component is axisymmetric.

Punith

Hi @Prakash Pagadala

Thank you so much for the solving the issue. Can you tell me how you modified the timestep?. Also please tell me how can I use rotation symmetry for the same model.

Hello @Prakash Pagadala

the model which you gave worked without any problem. I ran a complete 360 deg model later which is running since yesterday but after 92% of the load there is no further iterations performed. Can you tell me how should I proceed further?Can I get the intermediate result?

@Punith

sorry I missed your last reply.

 

Introduce NLADAPT>> DIRECT>> NO. This will change the time step.

 

You can create symmetric boundary conditions if the load is symmetric and use the same.

Maybe time step is reduced to gradually the load. It is not possible to ramp load when the solver is running.

The solver is running since more than 15 hours and there is no further iterations perfomed. No increment in the load. But solver is running. I dont understand this.

Here is my output file. please have a look. No change since 15 hours. I need the results by Monday. Could you please help me out ASAP?.

pressFit3D.out

Dont kill the run. Your solution is done about 92%, wait it will converge.
