Project P5

Design with Pro/ENGINEER

Abstract

In Project P5, we introduce Pro/ENGINEER design optimization capabilities as well as conducting interactive design using the suite of Pro/ENGINEER CAD/CAE/CAM capabilities for a multidisciplinary design problem. We include an optimization design study for a cantilever beam as a single-objective optimization of single engineering discipline, including only structural performance measures. Then we present a single-piston engine example to illustrate the interactive design process discussed in Chapter 3 involving multiple engineering disciplines. For those who are not familiar with Pro/ENGINEER and embedded CAE/CAM modules, we encourage you to go over Projects P1 to P4 of the book series before moving forward ...
