The modeling of diesel engine cylinder head gasket joints is complicated by the nonlinear response of the head gasket’s materials. Linearization of these material responses can lead to significant errors in the solution’s results. The 1-dimensional nonlinear approximation made by the Gasket material option of the SOLID185 element sufficiently captures the response of the nonlinear gasket materials while maintaining practical solution times for the large model sizes associated with multi-cylinder head gasket joint models. This paper will give an overview of the model building and assembly process used to create a head gasket joint model, describe the nonlinear nature of the materials used in the model, and present comparisons of the model’s results with experimental measurements. Previous analyses of cylinder head gasket joints using Ansys employed a process in which the nonlinear responses of the head gasket materials were linearized to allow the use of an elastic modulus (Reference 1). While moderately effective, this process required the material response to be fairly linear over the range of load experienced by the gasket. Also, this technique captured the global response of the joint, but the linear material assumption limited the model’s ability to accurately predict load variation around the gasket,...

CATIA V6 Structural Analysis (STA) Assess mechanical behavior early in the design process with CAD-integrated analysis. Make CAD-Integrated Analysis Work for You Global competition requires the creation of better products faster and at lower costs without sacrificing quality. Many companies have adopted Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), but it has often been used by a limited number of highlyqualified specialists towards the end of the development cycle. This practice ends up restricting CAE’s effectiveness in the design phase. Performing simulation earlier in the design phase with industryproved design-integrated analysis technology can provide significant time and cost savings. About CATIA V6 Structural Analysis The tight integration of the CATIA Structural Analysis solution within the CAD environment allows design-analysis iterations to be performed rapidly by designers working within the CATIA design environment. It enables linear stress and modal analysis on parts and hybrid assemblies, including surfaces, solids, and wireframe geometries. Each 3D part is directly meshed and all connections are automatically generated to ensure mechanism consistency, as enabled through a unique joining technology. Features & Benefits • Linear stress and modal analysis on parts and hybrid assemblies enables designers and design engineers to simulate and validate assemblies that include surfaces, solids, and wireframe geometries. • Associativity between design and analysis specifications allows the analysis model to remain consistent with the design, no matter how often and substantial the design changes. • Easy-to-use pre- and postprocessing capabilities enable CATIA designers to transition easily to using CATIA analysis products in the same environment. • Automatic mesh generation for 1D, 2D, and 3D geometries generates reliable finite element meshes without user input. Tools are available to modify and make improvements wherever necessary, as well.

FEMA P-751, NEHRP Recommended Provisions: Design Examples This chapter presents two examples that focus on the dynamic analysis of steel frame structures: 1. A 12-story steel frame building in Stockton, California. The highly irregular structure is analyzed using three techniques: equivalent lateral force analysis, modal response spectrum analysis and modal response history analysis. In each case, the structure is modeled in three dimensions and only linear elastic response is considered. The results from each of the analyses are compared and the accuracy and relative merits of the different analytical approaches are discussed. 2. A six-story steel frame building in Seattle, Washington. This regular structure is analyzed using both linear and nonlinear techniques. Due to the regular configuration of the structural system, the analyses are performed for only two dimensions. For the nonlinear analysis, two approaches are used: static pushover analysis and nonlinear response history analysis. The relative merits of pushover analysis versus response history analysis are discussed. Although the Seattle building, as originally designed, responds reasonably well under the design ground motions, a second set of response history analyses is presented for the structure augmented with added viscous fluid damping devices. As shown, the devices have the desired effect of reducing the deformation demands in the critical regions of the structure. In addition to the Standard, the following documents are referenced: AISC 341...

.A measurement and compensation control system for the spindle thermal expansion of machine tools has been developed in this study. The low cost but accurate thermal sensor of AD 590 IC and the tool setting probe MP4 of Renishaw Co. were developed for the measurements of temperature and spindle expansion respectively. Instead of the non-cutting condition as specified by the ISO230-3, the proposed thermal error model is derived from the real cutting condition. With the proper selection of sensor locations, a linear error model with respect to only one or two temperature terms could always be obtained. An embedded error compensation system using an 8051-based single board computer was then developed to compensate for the thermal error in real time. As the error model can be generated in one day under hazard conditions and the whole system is low cost, this system is suitable for industrial use. The intelligent features of this system include: fast model generation, self-malfunction detection, real-time temperature display, EMI removal, automatic compensation, and suitable for most ambient conditions. Experimental tests show the thermal error of a general type CNC machining center can be

1. Formulation and background. The problem indicated in the title is one of the most important hitherto unsolved problems of the calculus of variations, namely: Given any family of 2" curves (paths) in («+1)-dimensional ü —1, • • • ,n), as represented by a system of differential equations (Li) y'! = F{(x, yj, yj) to determine whether these curves can be identified of some variation problem (1.2) space (x, y,), (l-i, with the totality of extremals ^ and in the affirmative case to find all the corresponding functions The present paper solves this problem for the most important esting case of 3-dimensional space (n = 2), where the given family a>4 curves defined by differential equations of the form (1.3) y" = F(x, y,z, y',z'), and the variation (1.4) •• • ,*); problem sought and interconsists of z" - G(x, y, z, y', z'), for is of the form J 4>(x, z, y', z')dx = min. y, Our essential results and methods have already been published in two preliminary notes(1). Basically, our procedure consists in an application of the Riquier theory of systems of partial differential equations to a certain linear differential system @ on which the inverse problem can be made to depend. This differential system has already appeared—derived in a different way—in the interesting work, of little more than a decade ago, by D. R. Davis on the inverse problem^); but, as he stated, its general solution—even existence-theoretically— presented difficulties which he could not overcome. Presented to the Society, January 1, 1941; received by the editors March 13, 1940. Q) Numbers 8 and 9 of the list of references at the end of §2.

The term boundary value problem is applied to the question of determining whether a given system of differential equations (in general, a given system of functional equations) has one or more solutions satisfying certain prescribed end or boundary conditions; and, if so, the determination of the character of these solutions and how their character changes when the differential equations or boundary conditions change. This address is restricted to the discussion of a class of linear boundary problems which are intimately associated with the calculus of variations. These boundary value problems have been used in establishing sufficient conditions, especially for the more complicated problems of the calculus of variations. On the other hand, the principles and theorems of the calculus of variations have been of extreme significance in the advancement of the theory of such boundary value problems. In fact, the calculus of variations has served to unify a certain class of boundary problems much larger than that seemingly represented by the problem that we shall first formulate. In view of the rather extensive interest and study of these problems within recent years, ...

Optimal Operation of Photovoltaic Power Conversion Systems: Maximum Power Point Tracking Approach Brief summary of the tutorial contents: As the quantum of available fossil fuels are decreasing day –by- day the world is going towards the use of renewable energy sources either to supplement the existing utility supply are replace completely to mitigate the global warming related problems. Photovoltaic (PV) power generation is one among these renewable sources and has tremendous potential and going to play a key role in the future power generation systems. In view of this it is now becoming essential to look into various aspects of the PV energy conversion into electric energy of form that is suitable to integrate to the conventional utility systems and to drive the versatile electric loads. As the solar radiation/ insolation is changing continuously, right from morning to evening, and hence it’s power output also changes. Further, the photovoltaic cells/ modules exhibits non-linear voltampere characteristics and hence their power output also depends on the type of load connected to it. In order to extract the available power from the solar modules and to improve the overall...
