Finite Element Analysis - Team V1 1. Hard Opening Using Comosworks, the canopy was analysed to find out the effect of slamming it upwards – as if somebody had opened it a little too vigorously. Restraints were modeled as the two bottom edges being fixed (shown by the green arrows in Fig 1). This should be a reasonable approximation given we do not know the exact position of any holes being drilled. A force of 2g is applied both horizontally and vertically at the top part of the canopy, where somebody who was opening it from the outside is expected to grip. Fig 1: Loads and Restraints Applied to Canopy The mesh was created with default options, and at its finest setting for best accuracy. Fig 2: Mesh created on shell surface.

Stress is fairly low throughout the canopy, exceeding yield at the very edges by the fixed restraints. As these are not actually our restraints, can assume this will not happen in the real case. Fig 3: Stress Distribution
