## Comparison of stress concentration on plates with different number of holes

Introduction: Does stress  act differently on a structure depending on how many cuts or holes are present in it? Does a structure’s deformation depend on the number of cuts or holes present in it? To find out the answers, we will be designing two similar plates in this project, with Read more…

## Design of Frontal BIW enclosure of a car (Bonnet)

Introduction: The Hood or the Bonnet of a car is considered as the frontal BIW enclosure component. Bonnets are designed to reduce air resistance as the air flows around the car. The design of the bonnet is vital since it affects the aerodynamic flow around the car. Apart from this, Read more…

## Simulating flow through backward facing step

Introduction: Studying flow behavior through various structures is an important subject of mechanical engineering. When fluids flow through different geometries, they exhibit different velocity, pressure and flow properties. We have decided to simulate flow through a backward facing step to study the flow of fluids through geometries that have sudden-changing Read more…

## Crash Analysis of a Rear Car Door into a Pole

Introduction: When performing crash analysis, one of the common tests that engineers perform is check the integrity of the rear car door. In this project, we will perform the same test using a simulation. This project deals with analysis of a rear door of a car crashing into a pole. Read more…

## FSI analysis on the side view mirror of a car

Introduction: When a car travels through air, it basically pushes the air aside, causing the air to flow along the body. This flow of air along the car body impacts the forces acting on the car. The earlier models of cars which were box-shaped generated an increased amount of drag Read more…

## Frontal Crash analysis of a roll cage

Introduction:  This project deals with the analysis of the roll Cage for the Formula Student Car. In a Formula Student Car, the roll cage is one of the main components. It forms the structure or the main frame of the vehicle on which other parts like engine, steering, and transmission Read more…

## Analysis of drag for side mirrors of an automobile

Introduction: When the older cars were designed first, the aerodynamic factors weren’t taken much into consideration. The frontal panel was primarily designed to hold the engine. However, as time passed by, engineers realized that the design of the car was impacting the airflow around the car. the older models were Read more…

## Predicting the complex motion characteristics of a double pendulum using MotionSolve (HyperWorks)

Introduction: The Complex or Double pendulum exhibits one of the most chaotic motion characteristics known to us. It is considered to be unpredictable in its movement. However, we can solve the motion of such systems using the equations of motion. But if you attempt to solve the movement of a Read more…

## Airfoil Simulation – Plotting lift and drag coefficients of an airfoil at different angles of attack.

Airfoils are specifically designed structures that generate lift force when air flows over it. This has led to a whole new branch in the field of mechanical engineering and has allowed to explore the atmosphere and space. when an airfoil travels through air, lift is produced.  Simultaneously, the flow of Read more…

## Simulating Flow through a Pipe Using OpenFOAM

Objective: The objective here is to simulate flow through a cylindrical pipe. Pipe flows have been studied extensively and are very vital in studying about fluid mechanics. The governing equation for flow through a pipe can be easily derived by applying key assumptions regarding the flow field. Such a simplified Read more…
