The Key Technology Research of Metal Bellows’ Virtual Design


Article Preview

A parametric designing program which is used for the analysis of metal bellows’ stiffness, strength and fatigue life is developed basing on the software’s which contain Ansys, MSC.Marc, MSC.Fatigue and UGII in this paper. A designing and analyzing system with highly automation and standardization is established combined with VC++ and other programming languages compiling system interface,arranging the process automatically and generating the results automatically.
