(Design Problem courtesy of Triple Eight Engineering Ltd)

Key Features Introduced in this Design Problem

Key features
1 Motion loads – multiple time steps
2 Modify joint position
3 Automatic convergence of results

Introduction

This design problem is a follow-on from Design Problem 4 and will look at the effective use of Dynamic Simulation to validate the structural integrity of the connecting rod. The force will be exported from the simulation study and directly used in the Stress Analysis environment, removing the need to apply loads and restraints.

The main requirements of this design problem are to determine:

Maximum stress in the connecting ...
