Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Transmission Housing


A transmission housing has certain functional requirements based on which it was designed through the years. During the design of a gearbox there has been hardly any rigorous design procedure adopted for transmission housing. There is need for a definite design procedure in consideration of a large number of failures in such designs. We are going to prepare the Design Analysis of a transmission housing using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Method. Like gear and shafts transmission housing is also important transmission component. Thus the strength of transmission housing is to be important parameter to be taken into account while designing. After getting 3D model pre-processing is prepared by using Ansys. The proper inspection of the material and understand the critical region in the casting. The FEA analysis helps to understand the critical region and non-critical region. The analysis helps to proper optimization of geometry and helps to reduce the size or increase the size and increase the total life of the component. Optimized design for the transmission housing found out by this process in which it has the best performance without any failure and with minimum loads acting on the housing. FEA also be carried out on design of the gearbox housing to check whether the design is safe or not.
