Mounting Bracket CAEmate

Project Description

This numerical simulation investigates the deformation and the equivalent stress in a metallic (aluminium) mounting bracket. The structure is subject to the combined action of torsion, point load and dead load.
The analysis shows an accumulation of the equivalent stress in the bottorm arms, which stays however well below the aluminium yield strength.
The FE mesh was generated through optimized automatic tetrahedralization of the geometrical model.
