Structural Analysis of A Mechanical Coupling

The Client:

Leading Industrial machinery manufacturer in the US.


To assess the structural strength of the mechanical joint that included two halves. FEA Analysis methodology is to be used for the assessment.

Client Expectations:

Client expected us to verify his concept through FEA Analysis methodology with respect to the loading details available. The hidden expectation from our FEA Analysis team was to select proper FEA Analysis mesh size, right boundary conditions and controls.

FEA Analysis Project Challenges:

The project was considered to be a very basic level FEA Analysis simulation for our FEA analyst initially. But since it required to predict the FEA Analysis results accurately, our FEA Consultant had to carry out FEA Analysis mesh sensitivity studies in order to judge the FEA results. It also required our FEA Analysis team to back the FEA Analysis results with some manual calculations with simplified problem. This was important for us to convince the end client that the FEA results will represent the actual physics.

FEA Analysis Project Deliverables:

FEA Analysis Project deliverables included a summary stating the conclusion regarding the FEA Analysis. These conclusion and summary were backed by numerous images such as the stress and deformation plots for the assembly.

Customer Delight Experience:

The client expected us to complete the FEA Analysis project within 7 working days which we delivered in 3 working days hence delighting the customer by quicker than expected delivery for the FEA Analysis. Our FEA experts examined the project both from coupling domain and FEA Analysis aspects. Our FEA analyst had referred a lot of literature related to the Design of couplings and incorporated the learnings into the FEA Analysis report. The client was very happy thanks to the high quality FEA Analysis report which was possible due to the efforts of our FEA Analysis team consisting of FEA Consultant, FEA Analyst and FEA Analysis Lea.

Market Insights for Drones:

The mechanical coupling market is expected to grow at a steady rate with changed demographics demand and challenging designs. However, innovation driven product development will challenge the conservative design used by majority of the manufacturers. The current project leads towards a simulation driven product development process using FEA Analysis for Mechanical Coupling. In the coming years, as FEA Analysis becomes more adaptable and democratized, more and more companies doing product development for mechanical couplings will adhere to FEA Analysis to verify the product design by virtual testing.
