Topology Optimization on Bracket Side Panel of Beach Cleaner’s Dumping Device
According to the typical working conditions of beach cleaner, which come from the result of the virtual prototyping model’s simulation analysis. Establish the optimal topology design of the bracket side panel of the dumping device by ANSYS software. Compare the results before and after optimization, we conclude that, the bracket side panel has been not only reduce by 17.1% in mass under meeting the strength and rigidity requirements but also improved its welding technology. At the same time, this paper can provide reference for the lightening design and manufacturability improvement of complex loading parts.
