Material selection affects the behaviour, performance, and durability of a product. This blog explores material selection options and how to speed up this process in Ansys Mechanical using the comprehensive material database and tools to evaluate and compare the material behaviour.
In the final part of our series on using Electronics Reliability simulation tools to meet important industry standards, read how to apply Reliability Physics Analysis (RPA) in Ansys Sherlock to meet the MIL-STD-810G standard relating to environmental and lab tests approved for use by the US Department of Defence.
Read how to apply Reliability Physics Analysis (RPA) in Ansys Sherlock to the DO-160G standard which covers “Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment” in the aerospace industry. PCBs installed in any airborne vehicles can be simulated in Ansys Sherlock to assess the vibrational and solder fatigue analysis in order to predict the life cycle/ Time-to-failure (TTF) of key components and the board itself.
Welding is a commonly used method that plays a crucial role in the safety, structural integrity, and durability of many fabricated structures. Learn about the significant new features in Ansys Mechanical 2022 R1 which greatly aide the preparation of FEA models involving welded structures and will save you many days of model preparation time.
Read how to apply Reliability Physics Analysis (RPA) in Ansys Sherlock to the GMW3172 Standard for “General Specification for Electrical/Electronic Components – Environmental/Durability”, part of engineering standards by General Motors which applies to electrical components for passenger/commercial vehicles & trucks.
Read how to apply Reliability Physics Analysis (RPA) in Ansys Sherlock to the SAE J3168 standard, covering Electrical, Electronic, Electromechanical Equipment, Modules and Components. This standard was jointly developed by the SAE Automotive Electronic Systems Reliability Standards Committee and SAE Avionics Process Management Committee, and is the first reliability physics analysis (RPA) standard developed specifically for use in the Aerospace, Automotive, Defence and other High-Performance (AADHP) industries.
It is increasingly important for product designers to consider electronics durability and PCB reliability across the product’s entire service life – accounting for all external influences that it will experience during production, shipping, and the environment during its operation. Here we look at how simulation is used to satisfy the requirements dictated by common industry standards.
Learn more about improvements in performance, usability, speed and model physics in Ansys 2022 R1 for Structures. Here we look at general FEA highlights and new features of broad interest to our customers plus a 2nd video exploring the new capabilities of the Ansys Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Toolkit.
