Testing hardness of specimens using a Rockwell B hardness testing machine. Continue reading “Material Hardness Testing Investigation”
Conducted through Glasgow University Engineers Without Borders.
Enables students to make use of their engineering knowledge by designing CAD models and improving their theoretical background in mechanics, electrics and aerodynamics, as well as gaining experience working on a long term project.
This investigation demonstrated key areas of Finite Element Analysis through a bracket problem using ANSYS and Workbench in conjunction with a knowledge of various subjects discussed in the FEA course.
Application of Abaqus to a finite element analysis problem – flat plate with a centre hole and applied point load on one edge of 2.6 kN. Two plane stress elements (CPS4 and CPS8) were compared. Continue reading “Abaqus Plate Centre Hole Investigation”
A 3D cantilever beam with solid elements was modelled on abaqus and the deflections were calculated. Repeating the analysis on Abaqus using different numbers of elements and element types gave a comparison of results. Continue reading “Abaqus FEA Cantilever Beam”
