Loads Cascading for Full Vehicle Component Design 2020-01-0762

Frequency domain methods of analysis are now being used for the evaluation of fatigue for large vehicle systems and these methods offer advantages over equivalent time domain approaches in a number of ways, including analysis efficiency and the usefulness of derived results. One big potential advantage is to be able to do localized sub-component analysis using “cascaded” loads. Such sub-components can be analysed with refined parameters such as more sophisticated damping or a different frequency range. Local parts can also be re-analysed at a different phase in the design program. This paper will demonstrate the approach and show examples of the method.
