Simulation Software Perform stress analysis of pistor (seethe attached SolidWorks file) using the following data: Material RSP Technology Aluminum RSA-447 Piston Alloy http://www matweb.com/ Density 2750 kg/m^3 Thermalconductivity 130 W/m-K Specific heat 1000 J/(kg.K Thermalexpansion 1.8e-5 m/K coefficient Modulus elasticity 97 GPa Poisson's ratio 0.33 Shear modulus 36.46 GPa Tensile strength 530 MPa Yield strength 425 MPa Loads Pressure on the top part of the piston 1.0 MPa 1 Restraints 1 The piston's motion is restrained in vertical irection on the upper portion of the pin hole as itis shown in the picture on theright. 2 The piston's motion is restrained radial and tircumferential directions on the cylindrical surface as shown in the picture onthe right 1. Stress analysis without thermal load (use mesh size of 2mm) Perform stress analysis inthe piston using the material and loads men tioned above Plot distributions of: . x,y, components ofthe displacement vector; Resultant displacement; Von Mises and : 1st principal stresses; Factor of safety. Annotate positions of the max values ofthe displacement, von Mises and 1" principal stresses. Answer the following questions: 1. What the value of the safety factor? 2. Can the piston withstand the applied load? 3. What needs to be done to ensure that simulation results are correct? 2 2. Stress analysis with thermal load (use mesh size of 2mm) Perform thermal stress analysis in the piston using tempera ature distribution obtained in HW#3 and the material and mechanic: loads mentioned above Assume that the reference (strain free) temper ature of the piston was 20°C. Plot distributions of: x,y, zomponents of the displacement vector; Resultant displacement; Von Mises and 1st principal stresses; Factor safety. Annotate positions of the max values ofthe displacement, von Mises and: 1" principal stresses. Answer the following questions: 1. Whati the value of the safety factor? 2. Can the piston withstand the applied load? Bonus question: Does the mathematical formulation of the restraint #1 (onthe upper portion of the pin hole) adequately describe the real-world situation? If not, what could be better choice for restraint #1?
