Structural Displacement Response Prediction Based on Finite Element Method
This paper presents a method for analytical prediction of displacement response and the results from virtual vibrating tests of a washing machine cabinet model. The cabinet was modelled with finite element method in ANSYS software. The input excitation used during the test was from the records obtained from the virtual prototype of a front-loading washing machine during the spin-dry cycle. The simulation results indicated good agreement with the mechanical performance of the actual test system, which could afford better support for designers to explore the robustness of the cabinet.
