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.
