Modeling and Simulation Technology of Complex Mechanical Systems


Article Preview

Reasonable simplification of finite element modeling of complex mechanical systems can reduce the amount of elements and nodes. The solution efficiency is improved in this way, which is of great economic significance in the practical engineering problem. Based on the modeling and simulation of a Conveyor System between Roving Frame and Spine Frame in automated textile production line, this paper investigates and proves the effectiveness of simplification of the complex mechanical system in the dominant finite element software – ANSYS. Results of static analysis of the simplified model agree well with the actual data, proving that the simplified solid-beam element model of the Conveyor System is reasonable. The results lay the foundation for the subsequent kinetic analysis and optimal design of complex mechanical system.
