HOMEWORK 9: VEHICLE BRACKET ANALYSIS IN COMSOL Please read the entire assignment before you start generating the model, this will help you plan each step of the process. Consider a hanger bracket used to support an exhaust pipe that is directly after a catalytic converter. A dimensioned schematic of the bracket is shown below. The bracket is 40mm wide, and extends out the page. The drawing plane is the x-y plane, and the extrusion is in the z-direction. (Hint: this is how you should generate the geometry and mesh) 30 mm 5 mm r = 15 mm r = 20 mm 10 mm r = 10 mm r = 15 mm The material properties for AISI-302 stainless steel, which is used to make the bracket, are given below: Young’s modulus, E = 195 × 10 9 Pa Poisson ratio, ν = 0 . 30 CoeFcient of thermal expansion, α = 17 × 10 - 6 1 /K 1
