Behavioral Characteristics Analysis and Structural Design of Conceptual Interface of Mechanical Products

Abstract:

Article Preview

In conceptual mechanical design process, designers sometimes focus their attentions on mapping a sub-function or functional unit to a single mechanism or system, and ignore the interfaces among the structural elements. This paper first summarized the behavioral characteristic of the interfaces in energy, mechanics, kinematics by analyzing the roles, classification and connection styles of such interfaces. Subsequently, it introduced the concepts of function and free surface, and gave the interface design process. Finally, a case study was conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed methodologies.
