Report Evaluates a Cantilever Beam When Subjected to a Load

User Description:
This report scrutinizes the finite element method analysis software “Abaqus” comparing with experimental and analytical methods to model the structural behavior of a galvanized steel wire beam. The uniquely shaped beam was presented as a type of rigid element cantilever beam and was subjected to an external concentrated force where the maximum deflection and frequency were required to be used for comparison. The experimental and analytical methods used will be expressed with their functionality and limitations. The report discusses any major variance when comparing methods as well as the benefits of using Abaqus regarding an engineering environment.

Stress/vibration analysis of a concept mechanical control surface mixing system

This student studied:
RMIT University - AERO2357 - Aerospace Finite Element Methods

A concept design of a mechanical control surface mixing system is to be developed further by putting it under stress-displacement analysis and also normal modes of vibration analysis. ABAQUS is used for the finite element modeling of the system. Each part of the system undergoes processes which are partition, meshing, assembly, and finally the analyses. Justification for several of the processes such as the element type chosen and meshing quality is clearly stated. Analytical analyses are then performed to validate the result obtained from the finite element method.
