The developer does not include self-directed tutorials with the software, but the company will provide user training directly. The trainers customize course content material and duration to meet up the needs of each organization. A one-week training session would be sufficient to cover the basic modules and some advanced topics. Many extremely specialized software packages require constant use to become and stay proficient. I find that RomaxDesigner will not require this degree of interest. Engineers with other responsibilities will find this software functional even if not applied to a regular basis.
For parallel and perpendicular-axis gears, modules provide interfaces to more detailed analysis software, such as Simpack, LDP, and AnSol. They act as a “front end” for even more-computationally intensive formulations of bending and contact stress. The combination of these software programs is particularly powerful, as it permits cumulative damage-life analysis like the nonlinear ramifications of gear-tooth deflection and bearing stiffness, acting on a completely Driveline gearboxes developed tooth profile. Extra modules focus on NVH and powerful characteristics, such as gear rattle and whine, program modal evaluation, and clutch analysis. Modules are also available to automate optimization and for the sensitivity analysis of system and component designs.
RomaxDesigner models can include spur and helical gears, and with the perpendicular-axis module, bevel and hypoid gears. The bottom software models gears with enough detail to analyze their effects on the rest of the system. Additional modules allow design and rating to AGMA, DIN and ISO criteria. For parallel-axis gears, extra modules permit macrogeometry definition and optimization for manufacturability as well as detailed evaluation of microgeometry for get in touch with stress and transmission mistake. RomaxDesigner graphics are suitable for a variety of reporting illustrations, such as system topology and component deflection.
Bearing models provide non-linear stiffness interactions with adjacent parts, which can be critical when calculating gear-support stiffness, gear-mesh misalignments and preload requirements. When calculating bearing lifestyle, the models are the effects of misalignments developed through the versatility of any coupled components. A bearing preload tool automates studies of bearing life because a function of preload. These features have already been proposed for another release.
Advanced bearing-analysis modules provide detailed analyses (ISO 281 Supplement 4), including contact stress, fluid-film thickness, and stress-based lifestyle calculation. Advanced bearings can be defined with a variety of predefined roller and raceway crowns, or with a measured crown.
