Structural Analysis Using Cast Scale Models 770883

A method for structural analysis using cast plastic scale models is presented. The method was used to predict the dynamic structural response of a vehicle powertrain using one-half scale cast Polyurethane models of the engine block and transmission case. The results of the model test program allowed the design to be modified to meet structural objectives before tooling commitments were made.
