Automatic Generation of the CAE Parametric Model from the CATIA Model for an Aircraft Hydraulic Tube Structure
In order to help the designers estimate the dynamic response of the aircraft hydraulic tubes in the working environment, a design and simulation software is developed based on CATIA and ANSYS using VB as the developing tool. This paper concentrates on the part of auto-modeling and introduces the key technologies to automatically extract the CATIA model data and build the CAE parametric model of aircraft hydraulic tube structure in ANSYS. It provides an approach to transfer a CATIA model into a CAE model conveniently which reduces the time for FE (Finite Element) analysis and makes the designers be free from the repetitious data transmission, modeling and so on.
