Fatigue Analysis of a Wheel Rim

Application ID: 2038

A fatigue analysis is performed on a wheel rim. The Findley fatigue criterion is examined. The submodeling technique is utilized performed a detailed study on the critical part of a spike. At first a study of the full model is made. The critical part is identified and a submodel is reanalyzed. The road load, which rotates around the wheel, is mapped from the analysis of the full model to the analysis of the submodel.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
