Designed for use by Engineering Students, this book provides background reading for use with Altair's MotionView and MotioNSolve. Together with the accompanying Students Guide, it provides a quick, complete and correct introduction to using this software to simulate mechanical systems, often called Mechanisms Analysis.

For more learning resources on HyperWorks and CAE, for both students and teachers, see http://www.altair-india.c om/edu/students

Student Project Summaries CAE and Multi Body Dynamics2
Introduction
This material is best used after reading the book 
CAE and Multi Body Dynamics 
. Access to HyperWorks software is not essential for you, the instructor. Of course, if you choose to solve the problems yourself before working withyour students, you will need HyperMesh, MotionView, MotionSolve,HyperView, HyperGraph and OptiStruct.This book describes 4 assignment problems that highlight differentapplications of HyperWorks. Each problem is independent, and is completein itself. Students may choose to do more than one, depending on theirinterest.To make best use of this material you will need a computer with a sound-card and speakers. Your computer should have a media-player program(such as Windows Media Player) and an Internet Browser that supportsJavaScript. The material can be copied to aserver and accessed by clients. You can customize the HTML files to suit yourrequirements. After opening the file, double-click on any text to edit it. Use the
save changes 
link on the left of your Browser windowwhen you are finished.
Installation Instructions: 
1. Copy the folders to your computer or to your server. If you areworking on a server, it is a good idea to set the folders to “readonly” to prevent inadvertent modifications.2. The videos are best played in full-screen at a resolution of 1024 x768. You may need to install the
CamStudio Codec 
to view video onyour computer. To do this, right-click on the file
camcodec.inf 
andchoose
Install 
from the popup menu. You may need administratorprivileges to do this.3. Ensure that JavaScript is enabled on your browser.4. Each folder contains one HTML file. Double-click on it to open theinstructions.5. Data files are provided as relevant – IGES files, HM files, etc.6. In case you need support, contact your distributor or emailedu.support@altair.india.com

Dynamic Stresses in a Gear Assembly
 Areas covered: 
Use of an FE mesh to calculate mass and inertial  properties 
Creation of Hexahedral and Shell meshes 
Transfer between FE models and MDL models 
The use of contact in transient analyses 
Flexible Body Analysis – mixing the rigid-body and flexible-body approaches in a single model Software used: 
HyperMesh 
MotionView 
MotionSolve 
OptiStruct 
HyperView 
HyperGraph 
Description of the Problem 
 An actuator is being designed for use in aposition controller. The design is at the conceptstage, and various alternatives are being workedout. The design specification of the actuatorassembly calls for the design of gears, given thecenter-to-center distance is 106 mm and thevelocity ratio is 1.28.The current proposal calls for the use of steelgears, but these may later be replaced withplastic. Obviously various options exist, but theeasiest is to check if involute profile spur gearscan do the job.Hand-design for gears is well-established, butFEA can provide higher precision calculations,thereby allowing the designers to use a lowerfactor of safety. Conventional FEA’sdisadvantages are twofold. First, the problemsetup can be fairly demanding since the loadsvary with time. Second, integrating the finiteelement model into the assembly-designsimulation is not very easy.
