Developing an efficient FEM structural simulation of a fan blade off test in a turbofan jet engine
This work develops a methodology for full engine FEA simulation of the fan blade off containment test for a jet engine using LS-Dyna. The fan blade off containment test is a safety requirement involving the intentional ...
The numerical evaluation of multi-piece crankshafts
This work develops a methodology for the FEM simulation of a multi-piece crankshaft. Various simulation models that include press-fit joint contact conditions and complex meshing schemes are examined in order to accurately ...
