Static and Eigenfrequency Analyses of an Elbow Bracket
Application ID: 4131
The component depicted in this model is part of a support mechanism and is subjected to various mechanical loads. This tutorial model takes you through the steps to carry out a detailed analysis of the part using the Structural Mechanics Module.
In the various parts of the example you are introduced to using the available basic analysis types, together with numerous postprocessing possibilities. These analysis types are:
- Static analysis
- Eigenfrequency analysis
- Damped eigenfrequency analysis
- Transient analysis
- Modal-based transient analysis
- Frequency response analysis
- Modal-based frequency response analysis
- Parametric analysis
- Linear buckling analysis
This tutorial model comes in two versions:
- A short version, elbow-bracket-brief, treating the three first analysis types in the above list.
- A complete version, elbow-bracket, treating all nine analysis types.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
