Drop test simulation and surrogate-based optimization of a dishwasher mechanical structure and its packaging module
A drop test simulation of the mechanical structure of a redesigned dishwasher is performed by using a detailed finite element (FE) model. The nonlinear explicit FE code LS-DYNAA (R) is used for the drop impact simulations. ...
Effect of hole reinforcement on the buckling behaviour of thin-walled beams subjected to combined loading
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2017-09)
In this study, the effect of hole reinforcement on the buckling behaviour of thin-walled structures mostly used in aircrafts is investigated under combined loads. A fuselage floor beam with real dimensions is used for the ...
Optimum crashworthiness design of tapered thin-walled tubes with lateral circular cutouts
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2016-10)
In this paper, the effects of introducing lateral circular cutouts on crash performances of tapered thin-walled tubes are explored within a simulation-driven surrogate-based multi-objective optimization framework. The crash ...
