Harmonic analysis is now implemented in APM Structure3D!

A solution is found for steady-state forced oscillations for a user-specified frequency range. It is understood that the force factors affecting the model change according to a harmonic law. The damping specified in the model avoids an unlimited increase in the amplitude of oscillations in resonance modes. The calculation is based on the linearity of the calculation model (absence of plasticity and absence of gaps). The calculation result is maps of displacements, velocities, or accelerations, as well as a spectrum (a graph of the model’s response depending on the frequency of external forces) for the user defined design node.

The main steps in the calculation:

  • preparation of 3D-models for the strength calculation (simplified geometry);
  • setting of boundary conditions (load, support);
  • mesh generation;
  • viewing the results (stress, displacements, safety factors, etc.);
  • calculation process;
  • view the results and analyze the values ​​of the main design characteristics (voltages, safety factors, displacements, etc.);
  • modification of the model according to the results of the calculations (change of the geometry / material);

APM FGA is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software that allows to solve wide range of engineering problems:

  • hydraulic and pneumatic equipment for various purposes, automatic control systems in which liquid or gas act as working medium;
  • heating, cooling and ventilation systems;
  • objects which are affected by wind flows.

Potential flow analysis allows you to calculate the pressure and velocity fields of ideal flows (incompressible, isothermal, inviscid).

Seepage flow analysis allows to calculate the pressure and velocity fields of flows through an hublot classic fusion ultra-thin skeleton 42mm replica orthotropic porous media e.g., water flow through soil.
Navier-Stokes flow analysis — numerical simulation of turbulent fluid flow.

User guides are presented as separate documents for each APM FGA module:

  • APM FGA — module for simulation of liquid and gas mechanics;
  • APM Structure3D — module for calculating the stress-strain state, buckling, natural and forced oscillations of parts and structures by the finite element method;
  • APM Studio — pre- and post-processor for creating models for strength (finite-element) analysis with the ability to import STEP files.

APM Mechanic

Calculation of machine parts and mechanisms

APM Mechanic is a software designed to perform calculations of machine parts and mechanisms, as well as their compounds.

In fact, APM Mechanic is an integral part of the APM WinMachine software, but it can be used as an independent software.

APM Mechanic is built according to a modular scheme, which provides the convenience of its use under highly targeted industrial tasks of mechanical engineering.

There are built interconnections between the computational modules to ensure the automation of solving complex problems, for example, designing a reduction mechanism. In this case, the modules for designing mechanical gears, calculating shafts and bearings work in symbiosis. Information between them is transmitted automatically. At the same time, the designer performs the supervisory cheap replica rolex datejust 116203sdo rolex calibre 2836 2813 mens automatic function and, if necessary, can make corrections at any stage of the calculation process.

All modules are divided into three thematic groups:

  • Graphic tools (2D pre-post-processor);
  • Machine parts and connections (calculations of standard machine parts, mechanisms, as well as their connections);
  • Databases.

User guides are presented as xf factory watch separate documents for each APM Mechanic module:

  • APM Joint — module for calculating and designing connections for machine elements;
  • APM Trans — module for calculating and designing mechanical rotation gears;
  • APM Shaft — a module for calculating and designing shafts and axles;
  • APM Bear — a module for calculating and designing bearing units with regard to their accuracy class;
  • APM Drive — a module for calculating and designing bearing;
  • APM Spring — the module for calculating and designing the elastic elements of machines;
  • APM Cam — CAM calculation and design module;
  • APM Plain — module for calculating and designing plain bearings;
  • APM Screw — module for calculating screw gears;
  • APM Dynamics — module of the kinematic analysis of lever mechanisms;
  • APM Graph — a 2D parametric drawing and graphics editor;
  • APM Base — a module for creating and editing databases.
