The Fatigue Life Analysis of the Crosshead Based on ANSYS
With three-dimensional finite element method, the crosshead of plunger pump was analyzed. The distribution law of stress at the crosshead was obtained and the stress concentration coefficient of high stress field was calculated. The life of crosshead was estimated by S-N curve of crosshead and the result of finite element analysis, which provides basis of estimating life of the crosshead.
