Notice: The Ansys Innovation Space (AIS) will undergo scheduled maintenance from June 6th to June 20th. During this time, all AIS sites will be available in read-only mode with no login function available. This means you will not be able to create any new forum posts on the Ansys Learning Forum, but you can still browse existing ones. Also, the course tracking on Ansys Innovation Courses (AICs) will be unavailable during this period. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

FEA in Automotive Industry

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

In this session we will introduce industry specific applications from the automotive industry and how Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to ensure safe and optimized design of different subsystems. We begin with a stress analysis of an engine connecting rod to determine the location and magnitude of the highest stress. Following that, we perform a similar stress analysis of a brake pad. Then we demonstrate how bolted joints are modeled in an axle assembly. In addition to these stress analyses, we perform thermal analysis of a gasket to find the temperature distribution over it. We end the session by performing a thermal analysis to determine the most optimized and efficient design for the fins of an air-cooled engine.
