Application of ABAQUS Secondary Development in Finite Element Analysis of the Bend Roller
Bend roller is a key component of belt conveyor. Its reliability and service life have serious impacts on the performance of conveyor. In this study, Python was used as the programming langrage to complete Secondary Development, mainly focused on complied User Interface and Scripting Program. Taking one meter bend roller as an example, its parametric analysis was accomplished, the results showed that program interface was friendly and feasible, and the design efficiency can be improved distinctly, further more it provided a theoretical basis for bend roller design and optimization.
