Pro/mechanica Analysis - Inverted Slider -building The Motion Model
In this tutorial, you will create a motion model of the Inverted Slider Mechanism. You will learn how to animate the motion and graph the position, velocity, and other characteristics of the motion.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 6 - Running The Analysis
In the previous steps we have defined everything necessary and we can now start the global sensitivity analysis.
Pro/mechanica Analysis - Bridge Structure - Fea Using Beam Elements
Structures containing long, constant cross-section beams can be modeled efficiently in Pro/MECHANICA by using beam elements rather than solid elements. In this tutorial, you will learn how to construct and analyze beam structures.
Pro/mechanica Analysis - Inverted Slider -building The Structure Model
In this tutorial, you will perform a finite element analysis on the driver linkage of the Inverted Slider Mechanism. You will learn how to define loads and constraints, run an analysis, and display the results. You will also learn how to perform sensitivity analyses and optimizations of design parameters.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 3 - Model Setup
In Step 1 and 2 we have created a model of the flexure that we wish to optimize, now in Step 3 we need to prepare this model for the finite element analysis. Applications (from the tool bar) followed by Mechanica and Structure invokes the integrated mode of Pro/MECHANICA. Here we define everything necessary for the design optimization. Selecting Model lets us define the geometry to be analyzed.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 7 - Analyzing The Results
To display the result of the analysis we first have to create a result window.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 4 - Defining The Analysis
Pro/MECHANICA can perform a variety of analyses that cover a wide range of engineering problems. In our case we are interested in the stress levels that result from an imposed displacement. This type of analysis is covered by the static analysis definition.
PRO/Engineer is quite unusual as a solid modeller in that it is capable of recording and using tolerance information. The addition of tolerances and their use within such operations as weight calculation and part interference are described.
Using The Thermal Module Of Pro/mechanica To Optimize A 3d Electrostatic Problem
We can take advantage of the fact the governing equations for heat conduction and electrostatics are the same, using the Thermal module of Pro/MECHANICA to solve basic electrostatic di-electric problems . Even 3D problems can be solved quite easily in a simple and straightforward way. Furthermore, we can use the powerful functionality in Pro/MECHANICA to optimize the geometry, thus improving from the normal "merely acceptable" to a "near optimum" result.
Pro/mechanica Analysis - Inverted Slider -building The Thermal Model
In this tutorial, you will perform a thermal analysis of the Inverted Slider Mechanism to determine the minimum and maximum temperatures of the end of the guide link. You will learn how to apply boundary conditions, model different materials, and run and plot thermal analyses.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 2 - Definition Of Design Parameters And Relations
After the creation of the Pro/E model, identify dimensions that are crucial to the functionality of the designed part, then create design parameters and associate them with these dimensions. In our example, the key dimension for the flexure is center thickness of the tapered beam.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 5 - Defining The Global Sensitivity Study
As a next step we need to define the analysis used for the design optimization. We now make use of the design parameters defined in step 3 and use it to update the geometry after each successful run. This way we can very easily track the effect of this particular parameter on the criteria we are interested in.
Design Optimization Using Pro/mechanica - Step 1 - Part Creation
Pro/MECHANICA is a linear Finite Element Analysis package that is tightly integrated within Pro/ENGINEER. A distinct feature of the package is called Global Sensitivity Study whereby certain dimensions are not assigned a fixed value but rather a range of values. MECHANICA uses these parameters to update the geometry of the part after each run before analyzing it again. This type of analysis is a very powerful tool to identify the effect of varying the dimensions of design features.
Pro/mechanica Analysis - Inverted Slider - Modeling The Parts
In this tutorial, you will use simple modeling techniques to create the four components of the Inverted Slider Mechanism. Before beginning this tutorial, you should look over the Introduction so that you are familiar with the orientation and viewing commands.
