Example: Process for Design Modification of a Piston Engineering Goal: Reduce piston mass to improve engine performance 1 Requirements: © Dassault Systèmes Ι Confidential Information 1) 2) material choices limited to specific alloys minimum fatigue life must be met Analyst’s process: 1) 2) 3) Alter the geometry and material properties for the Piston in Abaqus/CAE Solve for stresses due to thermal and pressure loading Use fe-safe to combine stress results via load definition and calculate a fatigue life for Piston Interpret results and repeat from Step 1 by altering the geometry and/or material 2 3 4) 4. repeat! 2 . Best design? If not.
mass and fatigue life for each material 3 . so Analyst can compare optimal piston geometry. remesh and solve for stresses Simcode component runs fe-safe to generate fatigue life contour Loop runs the Optimization automatically for and identify “worst life” element each material choice. Abaqus and SimCode components Optimization searches for a design that minimizes mass while still meeting fatigue life requirement Abaqus components regen the part.Piston design process automated with Isight Isight Piston Model © Dassault Systèmes Ι Confidential Information Material properties picked from Excel Optimizer selects new design geometry Process is fully automated using Isight’s Excel.
