DESIGN OPTIMIZATION OF LANDING-GEAR BRACKET FOR AN UN-MANNED AERIAL VEHICLE USING FE SIMULATIONS Introduction:
The landing-gear assembly supports an aircraft on the ground and allows it to land and take-off.
The weight of the landing gear is an important factor which in turn increases the weight of the aircraft.
The project aims at optimizing the landing gears leg which minimizes the weight of the landing gear.
TOPOLOGY OPTIMIZATION OF A CONNECTING ROD OF AN HEAVY-TRUCK
Introduction: This projects aims at re-designing the connecting rod of internal combustion engine using the topology optimization. The topology optimization technique is applied to reduce the weight of the connecting rod.
The objective of this project is to develop a robust design of the connecting-rod with high strength-to-weight ratio using structural modeling, finite element analysis and the optimization.
OPTIMIZATION OF THE DESIGN OF BONNET-STIFFENERS OF A SEDAN Introduction: The Bonnet (hood) of the passenger-car provides aesthetic value to the vehicle and protects the under-hood systems like engine, radiator etc. However the bonnet is subjected to severe vibration loads.
This project aims at characterizing the dynamic behavior of an existing bonnet and improve its performance by re-designing the stiffeners through structural simulations and optimization using HYPERMESH, RADIOSS and OPTISTRUCT.
OPTIMIZATION OF CRANKSHAFT OF AN CAR USING CAE SIMULATIONS
Crankshaft is one of the most important moving parts in IC engine. It transmits the power generated by the engine to the gear-box. The crankshaft is subjected to severe bending loads. Hence maintaining the strength and bending-stiffness of the crankshaft for optimal weight is a major design-concern.
The aim of project is optimize the design of an automotive crankshaft for best strength and stiffness with minimum weight through structural simulations like modal analysis and stress analysis. More Details...
STATICS AND DYNAMICS STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF TRUCK CHASSIS TO ON-ROAD EXCITATIONS
The chassis of the truck provides the support to the entire-body and the chassis is subjected to vibration induced by road-excitations and by other vibrating components mounted on it.
This project aims at studying and improving the vibration characteristics of a truck chassis that include the natural frequencies and mode shapes through CAE simulations on using HYPERMESH and RADIOSS.
