Creating detailed cylindrical gear geometry

(German)

Presented by Ferdinand Wikidal, GearConsult

Dr. Ferdinand Wikidal demonstrates how precisely gear geometry can be determined and displayed in the FVA-Workbench in conjunction with ISO 21771:2014 and DIN 3960. The new feature's interactive graphics make it easy to evaluate meshes as well as to predict and eliminate meshing problems if necessary. New algorithms can perform these calculations even faster, reducing computing time for system calculations by up to 20%.

Preliminary design of bevel gear geometry

(German)

Presented by Birgit Hutschenreiter, FVA GmbH

With FVA-Workbench 6.0, the geometry of bevel gear stages can be precisely displayed and exported via CAD interfaces. This export option opens up new possibilities for using the geometry, such as additional FE calculations. No additional software tools are needed, accelerating the design process.

Calculation of cylindrical gear load carrying capacity

(German)

Presented by Dennis Tazir, FVA GmbH

Dennis Tazir presents ISO 6336:2019 for calculation of the load capacity of cylindrical gears. The standard contains the accumulated knowledge and experience from collaboration between research and industry. Now the damage forms of pitting, root fracture, scuffing, micropitting, and for the first time flank fracture, are all combined in a single international standard. This provides a strong foundation for the industry to develop reliable and sustainable products.

Proper dimensioning of oil pumps and lubricant lines

(German)

Presented by Dr. Moritz Keuthen, FVA GmbH

To ensure that sufficient lubricant is in contact for injection lubrication, the elements must be dimensioned and the minimum flow rate of the pumps as well as the diameter of the lines must be determined. Dr. Moritz Keuthen shows how piping systems can be virtually constructed and dimensioned in FVA-Workbench 6.0.

Comparing models with the FVA-Workbench 6.0

(German)

Presented by Marcus Bisanz, FVA GmbH

Marcus Bisanz shows how the FVA-Workbench can be used to compare complete models and evaluate the effects of complex influencing factors. This new feature makes it possible to capture model states in just a few clicks and store them directly in the model. This allows users to display the results for different models in a single report and easily identify and compare differences.

Efficient Gear Design with the FVA-Workbench

(German)

Presented by calculation specialist Karl Hahn, Hahn GearTec

The FVA-Workbench can be used to quickly and accurately design and simulate gearboxes for industrial applications. This tutorial provides an introduction to 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 5.0 and its features, including improved conditions for system-level calculations, a new reporting mechanism, new calculation functionalities, and FE planet carriers.

 

FE in the FVA-Workbench - Gearbox Housing

(German)

Presented by FE expert Georg Hammerl, FVA GmbH

FVA's FE expert Georg Hammerl shows how to import FE housings into the FVA-Workbench as CAD files, and how they can be meshed and positioned in the gear model. After a brief overview, a live demonstration in the FVA-Workbench is provided.

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. Modeling with rudimentary bodies, e.g. shafts and hollow shafts, neglects several deformation possibilities in which 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 demonstration provides an overview of the FE feature.

High-Quality Reports in a few Clicks

(German)

Presented by software specialist Marcus Bisanz, FVA GmbH

The reporting function in the FVA-Workbench simplifies documentation of calculation results. Interactive, presentation-ready reports can be created in HTML format with just a few clicks. In this video, software expert Marcus Bisanz shows how users can use the reporting feature to create easy-to-interpret results for optimized transmission designs.

State-of-the-Art Plain Bearing Calculations

(German)

Presented by software expert Benjamin Abert, FVA GmbH 

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