An Automation of Fatigue Durability Analysis for Welded Bogie Frame Using System Integration Techniques-Mechanical Engineering Projects

ABSTRACT

A web based automation of fatigue durability analysis for a welded bogie frame of railway vehicle is realized with several kinds of system integration techniques. The macro program of I-DEAS, the APDL of ANSYS, and an in-house fatigue code are utilized for the parametric geometry modeling and automatic generation of finite element models, the static stress analysis, the fatigue durability analysis, respectively. A multi-agent based engineering framework is implemented on the JADE to integrate the overall process. All engineering programs are integrated by a XML based wrapper. A database to contain engineering data and web based user interfaces are … Read the rest
