Finite Element Analysis

Below is an assignment i made, optimizing the design of a hole punch using FEA.

The analysis of the handle is shown as an example here.
To shorten calculation time, a symmetry constraint was used.


The same applies to the meshing.
By having a coarse mesh on the locations where the precision is not needed, the runtime of the analysis is shortened.


Below are the results of the study, where it’s visible that the yield strength is not passed in any location.
