Elasto-Hydro-Dynamic (EHD) Bearing Simulation

Zach Smith, Nov. 16, 2017

The enhanced RecurDyn/Elasto-Hydrodynamic (EHD) module increases the accuracy of simulating lubricated bearings, by taking into account the elastic deformation of the lubricated surfaces and its effects on the film shape and thickness. Effects of surface asperity (roughness) on the lubrication film are also taken into account.

A typical application of RecurDyn/EHD is in engines where the effect of lubrication between pistons / cylinders and/or crank / connecting rods is crucial. In this webinar, we will work through an example model of an engine, so that users can learn how to use RecurDyn/EHD and how it can be applied to their own systems.

New Time Signal Generator Module Training

Nelson Woo, Nov. 15, 2017

The new RecurDyn/Time Signal Generator (TSG) capability allows analysts to use physical test output data to predict the proper input forces and displacements to be applied to a multibody dynamic (MBD) model. This approach is typically used for vehicle testing, where the physical vehicle is tested over terrain but in the MBD model the vehicle is mounted on shaker plates.

Here, RecurDyn/TSG takes vehicle testing data such as accelerometer data, and predicts the drive signals for the shaker plates in the MBD model. In this application the main advantage of this approach is that it removes the requirement for terrain, driver,and tire modeling, which can be difficult to characterize correctly.

In the webinar, we will introduce the general concept of the RecurDyn/TSG approach, and will go through an example model to show how it is used. Training materials will be provided so the user can go through the procedure themselves at their own convenience.
