Abstract:
In this paper, a CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) methodology to simulate the vibration test and predict fatigue life of head lamp bulb shield is presented. A modal analysis is performed first to determine the critical elements from the strain energy density distribution patterns. A random vibration frequency response analysis is then performed to monitor the stress response power spectral densities (PSDs) for critical elements due to the g-load input PSDs, measured at the mounting point in all three directions. Fatigue life can be estimated based on the stress response PSDs and material S-N curve by using Dirlik's method. The fundamentals for frequency domain fatigue analysis are reviewed and a case study with test correlation is then presented.
