Research on Structure Analysis of a Feeder Based on ANSYS
Based on the large analysis software ANSYS, the FEA model of feeder was be setted up, the mechanical properties of the material was considered ,and the stress and deformation under loaded of two type materials HDPE and LDPE were be Comparative analysied, Results show that: the funnel’s stress smaller,the maximum stress only 2-3Mpa and no more than 7-31Mpa of two materials’ tensile strength.The funnel’s deformation in allowing strain range about 2-3 mm, so structure is safe.In addition,the feeder legs bearred bigger force about 60Mpa, because the material was used Q345 steel, so the strength was enough and HDPE material feeder have leeway of reduced materials.
