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 Coefficient of thermal expansion, α = 17 × 10 - 6 1 /K 1

Thermal conductivity, k = 17 W/ ( mK ) The bracket is mounted to the frame of the vehicle, near the engine block, and supports a pipe in the curved u-section. Heat is transmitted to the bracket through the frame and contact with the pipe. The pipe will oscillate

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
