Automated Finite Element Analysis of Fuel Rail Assemblies with the use of Knowledge Based Engineering Tools 2002-01-1244
Realizing the value of knowledge, corporations are turning to Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) as a design process. A fuel rail KBE tool was created at Visteon with the purpose of increasing knowledge retention and delivering knowledge based designs to the customer much quicker than with conventional methods. Currently, both engineers and CAD designers are using the Fuel Rail KBE Modeler at Visteon. It has been used on many vehicle programs and has saved the company countless person-hours of development time.
The Fuel Rail KBE Modeler is a powerful tool that saves resources through automation of both the design and analysis processes. This paper documents the incorporation of automated FEA capability into the KBE environment.
