Jason Hollenstein MEM 435 HW #1 Chapter 1, Question 1,2,3,4 1) Describe the difference between the design and analysis models. The difference between the design and analysis models is that the analysis model does not have unnecessary details such as dimensions, details and also has symmetry. The analysis model can also be put into a computer for FEA or stress analysis. 2) Why is the analysis model different from the design model? The analysis model is different from the design model because the analysis model is only derived from the design model by reducing its dimensions or removing unnecessary details. 3) What type of analysis work is involved in the design process?

Unformatted text preview: The type of analysis work that is involved in the design process is stress analysis, interference checking or kinematic analysis. Also there are software packages that allow a virtual prototype to be created, optimization algorithms can be used to create a better design and finally a design document is created to specify construction methods, materials and machinery programming. 4) What are the roles of CAD tools in the design process? The roles of CAD tools in the design process are to define the geometry of design because it is essential to any part made and any activities made after the geometry has been made....
