ME 371 – Mechanical Design II Instructors: Stephen Downing & Elizabeth Hsiao-Wecksler TA: Hyeongyun Cha ( [email protected] ), David Kaiser ( [email protected] ) Lab Exercise #3 – Shell and Solid FEA Analysis Part 1 - Shell Model In this part of the exercise, you will learn to model a solid beam element as a shell, which can be useful for thin-walled members to reduce the complexity of the problem. The behavior modeled will be a beam constrained at one end, and being pulled in tension from the other end, as with a pincer. Procedure: Create Shell Create and Assign Material Apply Constraints and Loads Run Analysis Create Shell Download the “Shell_Lab3.prt” file, and Save it in an appropriate directory in the “U:\” drive. Then open Creo Parametric, set your Working directory to that one, and open the file. In Creo: Applications > Simulate>Model Setup In the pop-up window, we will use all the default settings, but click “Advanced” to verify a 3D Model Type. Also be sure that you are using “Structure” and that “FEM mode” is not checked.
