Linear Static Analysis of Flat Plate with Holes using ANSYS Workbench

  • Objectives: To analyze flat plate with holes using FEM

 

  • Geometrical Design:

Here in this project we have a flat plate with hole; we are having two scenarios for the flat plate

1) Plate with One Hole & 2) Plate with three Holes.

This is how it looks like;

 

Case 1: Plate with One Hole (300x120x30 mm)

 

 

Case 2: Plate with Three Holes (300x120x30 mm)

 

  • Material Properties:

Material taken here is Structural Steel, mechanical properties of the given material is given below;

 

  • Problem Statement:

Flat plate is being analyzed with FEM with Ansys workbench, Plate will be fixed at one end, at the other end there will be applied Tensile Load.

 

  • Mesh Criterion:

Type of Elements: Tetrahedron

Element Size: 5 mm

Case 1:

 

Case 2:

 

  • Boundary Conditions:

Plate is fixed with Left side and applied tensile force of 500 N in Right side,

Case 1:

 

Case 2:

 

  • Post Processing:

Plate analyzed using Ansys Workbench using above given Constraints, and 3 results taken in consideration, Total Deformation, Equivalent Elastic Strain, Equivalent Stress.

 

Case 1:

Total Deformation:

 

Equivalent Elastic Strain:

 

Equivalent Stress:

 

Case 2:

Total Deformation:

 

Equivalent Elastic Strain:

 

Equivalent Stress:

 

 

Post Process Results Summary;

 

 

  • Results and Conclusion:

1) Stress Generated is higher in Case 2 than Case 1

2) Deformation is higher in Case 1 than Case 2

3) Strain is higher in Case 2 than Case 1

 

We can conclude that the result we can clearly see that stress generation in Case 1 is lower than case 2, but the there is significant change in weight of part so design 2 is best suitable for application.
