Numerical Analysis for an Novel Hooke Hinge Based on ANSYS


Article Preview

This paper utilizes SolidWorks to establish accurate Hooke hinge model and imports it into ANSYS using the data switching interface between SolidWorks and ANSYS. The stress-strain behavior of the Hooke hinge is analyzed using finite element method, and the reliability and stability of the structure is evaluated, which provides some theoretical guidance for the design of Hooke hinge.
