Goals

## Customer Training Material

Workshop 4 consists of a 5 part assembly representing an impeller type pump. Our primary goals are to analyze the assembly with a preload on the belt of 100N to test:
That the impeller will not deflect more than 0.075mm with the applied load. That the use of a plastic pump housing will not exceed the materials elastic limits around the shaft bore bore.

WS5.1-2

Assumptions

## Customer Training Material

Well assume the pump housing is rigidly mounted to the rest of the pump assembly. To simulate this, a frictionless support is applied to the mounting face. Similarly, frictionless surfaces on the mounting hole counter bores will be used to simulate the mounting bolt contacts. (Note if accurate stresses were desired at the mounting holes, a compression only support would ld be b a better b choice). h i ) Finally, a bearing load (X = 100 N) is used on the pulley to simulate the load from the drive belt. The bearing load will distribute the force over the th face f of f the th pulley ll only l where h the th belt b lt contact t t occurs.

Now we will add the frictionless supports to the 8 countersink portions of the mounting holes (shown here). Each of the required surfaces could be selected individually while holding the CTRL key however we will use a macro (select by size) provided with the DS i installation. t ll ti After Aft selecting l ti the th initial i iti l surface, f running i the th macro finds fi d and selects all surfaces of the same size (area). Note, this macro also works with edges or bodies.

13. Highlight the Analysis Settings and from the details window change Weak Springs from Program Program Controlled Controlled to Off Off .
Note : Because of the presence of frictionless supports non bonded contact, , Workbench-Mechanical will trigger gg the use of weak springs p g during the solution. If we know the model is fully constrained we can turn off this function. Before turning off weak springs make SURE that rigid body motion is prevented. Failing to do so can result in an unconverged solution.

While the overall plots can be used as a reality check to verify our loads, the plots are less than ideal since much of the model is only slightly effected by them (results may vary slightly due to meshing differences). ff )

To improve the quality of results available we will scope results to individual parts.

By checking the impeller deformation we can verify that one of our goals is met. The maximum deformation is approximately 0.024mm (goal < 0.075mm).

Inspection of the housing stress shows that, overall, the stress levels are below the materials elastic limit (tensile yield = 25 MPa). We could again use scoping to isolate the results in the area of interest.
