Abstract:
The arrival of new competitors and the continuous growth of the customer requirements, lead the OEM's to reduce the product development time; thus, the simulation tools available on the market became mandatory to the new products development in the automotive industry. However, to simulate a full connecting rod set is very time consuming.The goal of this work is to present the main simplifications that can be set on a connecting rod simulation using the Finite Elements Method (FEM) without jeopardizing the results accuracy. The main contribution of this study is to provide time optimization to the engineers and to avoid a wrong interpretation of the results according to the boundary conditions adopted on the simplified model.
