The method of approach varies depending on the type of analysis. Static and dynamic analysis These anaylses can be studied under the main two categories; static and dynamic.
Static analysis is the analysis conducted during the development period, as the product is in stable structured form. Performing this analysis independent of time, the geometry of the product is optimized and necessary improvements are made. Upon this the product is up for better optimized use. Firstly, the product/structure’s material model is created. Then, finite-element networks are created. Lastly, weight is applied to the model to test the product’s boundaries under various conditions. Using this data, solution and optimization methods are determined. The results and reports are compiled and delivered to the requested individuals or departments.
Static analysis results should be interpreted by respective experts. In analytical calculations, there are often variable solutions and not just a single solid answer. Varying results can be made by studying along the x-axis, y-axis or the volume. The interpretation of the these results are the most crucially important step. Often times, the breaking point criteria are considered when interpreting this analysis method.
Static analysis reports all results that can occur under static and stable conditions by events such as, tension, stress, stretching or straining. During their lifetime, products are frequently suffer impacts and deformations. These are the main reasons for shorter lifetimes of products. For this reason, static dynamic analyses are conducted to gain information on how to lengthen the lifetime of the products. Under general terms, the information gained below are reasons to conduct static analysis:
Resistance analysis has an important place in static analyses. Due to this type of analysis welding seam measurements are made, welding quality and material properties are determined and optimized.
Dynamic analysis examines the structure with respect to time, in order to provide analysis and solutions as a variable of time. The scope of dynamic analysis allows determining the changes that occur in the movable product model, as well as motion analysis.
Most structures or products are under constant motion. For this reason, it is essential that the product’s motion effects and strains are observed to lengthen the lifetime of the product.
Another step of the dynamic analysis is time-dependent analysis, which is conducted after static analysis. This complex combinations of analysis are often difficult to conduct and require specialization.
Finite element analysis is a type of dynamic analysis that pertains to structures with moving pieces that have complex geometries. In all types of static dynamic analyses, this type requires that most knowledge and expertise. Specialized experts provide this analysis using focused computing programs.
