Influence of Coupled Analysis for a Hot End Exhaust System Validation 2014-01-2354
Simulation's drive towards reality boundary conditions is the toughest challenge. Experience has shown that often the most significant source of error in thermal and dynamic analyses is associated within specified boundary conditions. Typically, validating the system by considering both thermal and dynamic loads with predefined assumptions is time consuming and inconclusive when confronted with reality boundary conditions.
Thus, the solution comes in unique way of combining thermal and dynamic loads with specified boundary conditions and will convey computational results closer to the real scenario. As a consequence, strain concentrated regions due to thermal expansion are aggregated more, when coupled with dynamic loading. The stress generated by the coupled analyses will prove to be critical in concerning the durability issue of the hot end system.
These conditions are evaluated by a finite element model through linear and non-linear approaches and results summarized.
