Geometric Modeling for Engineering Applications ME 331_Fall 2018 ME 331: Lab 4 Assignment – Design Optimization Objective : To optimize the part for minimum volume while considering the yield stress as the max allowable. During lecture the following was calculated using the default standard mesh: Noticing the stress gradients at the hole, we then applied mesh control to the hole surface and selected “Fine” mesh density. And the plot changed slightly to: It was shown that adding additional holes reduced the stress to nearly the yield strength:

Geometric Modeling for Engineering Applications ME 331_Fall 2018 The objective now is to further optimize the location and the radius of the two holes. Problem setup 1) Left face: fixture fixed. 2) Right face: 50,000 N load applied uniformly to the face 3) Material: Alloy steel, yield strength 620,422,000 N/m 2 . 4) The original plate has the following dimensions in mm: You will place holes (diameter D) at a distance A away from the hole:

    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.
