Efficient gear design with the FVA-Workbench

(German)

Presented by calculation specialist Karl Hahn, Hahn GearTec

The software allows gearboxes for industrial applications to be designed and calculated quickly and accurately. This tutorial introduces the analysis and calculation capabilities of the FVA-Workbench and shows how to achieve precise results with the high-performance software.

Unique features of the FVA Workbench 5.0

(German)

Presented by software expert Benjamin Abert, FVA GmbH

Benjamin Abert introduces the FVA-Workbench and its features in version 5.0. These include improved conditions for the overall system calculation, a new reporting mechanism, new calculation functionalities and the FE planet carrier.

 

FE in the FVA-Workbench - Housing

(German)

Presented by FE expert Georg Hammerl, FVA GmbH

Expert Georg Hammerl shows how FE housings can be imported as CAD files into the FVA-Workbench, meshed and positioned in the gear model. A live demonstration in the FVA-Workbench follows a basic part in which the reduction is discussed.

Integration of FEM planet carriers made easy

(German)

Presented by FE expert Georg Hammerl, FVA GmbH

The influence of the planet carrier on the gearing and the bearings in a planetary stage is of essential importance. A modelling with elementary bodies, e.g. shafts and hollow shafts, neglects several deformation possibilities, whereby material reserves cannot be exhausted in the design. The use of an FEM model of the planet carrier, on the other hand, allows a much more realistic description. This is shown by the expert in the demonstration of the FE feature.

High-quality result reports with just a few clicks

(German)

Presented by software specialist Marcus Bisanz, FVA GmbH

With the reporting function in the FVA-Workbench, the documentation of the calculation results is very simple. Presentation-ready and interactive reports in HTML format can now be created with just a few clicks. In this video, software expert Marcus Bisanz shows how users can use the reporting feature to easily interpret results that enable optimized transmission designs.

State-of-the-art plain bearing calculation

(German)

Presented by software expert Benjamin Abert, FVA GmbH 

With the FVA-Workbench, radial and axial plain bearings can be calculated according to the current state of science. The calculation methodology was developed in decades of research at the Institute for Tribology and Energy Conversion Machinery at Clausthal Technical University and verified and documented in numerous FVA research projects. Software expert Benjamin Abert shows how plain bearings are modeled, parameterised and calculated with the FVA-Workbench.
