EML 4507 FEA & DESGN Fall 2010 Project 2 Due on Monday Dec 6, 2010 The aluminum bracket with a central hole is subjected to uniform uniaxial stress as shown. Use Abaqus software to determine the deformed shape, and calculate the maximum von Mises stress and stress concentration factor. Properties of aluminum are: E = 70 GPa and = 0.33. Dimensions of the bracket: 200×100×5 mm. Diameter of the hole= 40 mm. Remote uniaxial stress = 50 MPa. a) Use triangular elements only. Repeat your calculations with number of nodes N K , 2 K and 4 K , where 4 K is approximately the maximum number of nodes you can use. Plot the von Mises stress contour for each case. Plot the deformed shape. You may like to use a magnification factor so that the deformed shape is distinct from the original model.

Unformatted text preview: Plot the following graphs: (i) stress concentration factor vs. log N ; (ii) maximum von Mises stress vs. log N ; (iii) u A vs. log N , where u A is the displacement in the loading direction at Point A with respect to the hole center. Compare your stress concentration factors with the theoretical value. What is the factor of safety for the bracket according to von Mises yield criterion? Yield stress of aluminum=280 MPa. b) Repeat ( a ) using quadrilateral elements. Your report should contain: (I) brief description of procedures used; (II) all figures and plots neatly and clearly labeled; (III) Discussion and conclusions; and (IV) References. A x y...

    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.
