Article Preview

In this paper, the finite element model for the cabinet of a drum washing machine and the model for testing vibration of the cabinet were developed in ANSYS software and PULSE™, respectively. A series of tests were conducted. The natural frequencies and mode shapes were obtained by finite element analysis and modal experiment, which revealed weak parts of the cabinet. Meanwhile, the computational modes were in good agreement with experimental ones and this could provide an available method by which it was convenient to improve the design of the cabinet.
