13° Impact Test Analysis of Aluminum Alloy Wheel

Abstract:

Article Preview

Light alloy disc wheels are used in daily transportation very extensively, wheels need not only an artistic external, but an excellent performance that up to standard. According to Chinese National Standard-CNS 7135 [1], this paper study about 13° impact test by using finite element software – ANSYS, applying theory of elasto-plastic mechanics, and considering the effect of tire absorption. So we estimate the absorption percentage of tire effect in three cases, 0%, 20%, and 40%. By Reducing the striker kinetic energy to compensate for tire absorption, and after the analytic results compared with the experimental results, the analytic results can put to the proof.
