Wheel Rim, CREO, ANSYS, Static analysis


Rims are critical components of any vehicle. The wheel is a device that enables efficient movement of an object across a surface where there is a force pressing the object to the surface. In the present every vehicle was designed with alloy wheels which are more efficient than spokes wheels. In this project we designed the rim from the existing dimensions by modelling software. The wheel rim is modelled by using modelling software PTC CREO 2.0. By using this software the time spent in producing the complex 3-D models and the risk involved in the design and manufacturing process can be easily minimized. So the modelling of the wheel rim is made by using CREO. Later this CREO model is imported to ANSYS for analysis work. ANSYS is the analysis software used for simulating the different forces, pressure acting on the component and also calculating and viewing the results. By using ANSYS software reduces the time compared with the method of mathematical calculations by a human. ANSYS static analysis work is carried out by considered by aluminium materials and their relative performances have been observed respectively.
