【最適化例題】OptiStructで特定の固有周波数を取り除く例題
ある部品の固有振動数を検討するとき、その部品の近傍にモーターなど、特定の周波数で動作する振動源があれば、振動源の周波数付近に固有振動数を持たないように設計したい、ということが考えられます。
OptiStruct の基本的な使用方法で行うのであれば、1次固有振動数を、振動源の振動数よりも大きくするという方法が、考え付きます。OptiStruct の使用方法としては最も簡単な方法ですが、部品の剛性を上げることになり、コストの増加を招くかもしれません。そのため、この方法を選択したくない場合もあるでしょう。
そこで、本書では、OptiStruct を用い、振動源の周波数付近のみに、固有周波数を持たない解を求める例題を示します。

Each sensor is a specific project for one customer. The design of a new sensor starts with the customer’s specification according to his individual requirements. For the development of a new sensor Esterline has to conduct intensive simulations to ensure to meet the needs. Multiple iterations on design changes are often required to define the optimal sensor design - from the CAD simplifications (removal of non-functional fillets, gaps, non-functional holes, even the modification of complex shapes that have no significant influence on the mechanical behavior) up to the final FEA, through the test results analysis (vibration results in terms of resonances, mode shapes and transmissibility’s, stress measurements via strain gauges …) and parameters fitting. To streamline the development process and to accelerate the model creation process, Esterline Advanced Sensors is applying HyperWorks and especially HyperMesh in the development of its aeronautic sensors.
