The developer does not include self-directed tutorials with the software, but the company does provide user training directly. The trainers customize training course content material and duration to meet the needs of each organization. A one-week work out would be sufficient to cover the basic modules and a few advanced topics. Many highly specialized software programs require constant use to become and stay proficient. I find that RomaxDesigner does not require this degree of interest. Engineers with other duties will find this software functional also if not applied to a regular basis.
For parallel and perpendicular-axis gears, modules provide interfaces to more descriptive analysis software, such as Simpack, LDP, and AnSol. They act as a “front end” for even more-computationally intensive formulations of bending and get in touch with stress. The mixture of these software packages is particularly powerful, since it permits cumulative damage-life analysis like the nonlinear effects of gear-tooth deflection and bearing stiffness, acting on a completely developed tooth profile. Additional modules focus on NVH and dynamic characteristics, such as equipment rattle and whine, program modal analysis, and clutch evaluation. Modules are also open to automate optimization and for the sensitivity analysis of system and element designs.
RomaxDesigner models may include spur and helical gears, and with the perpendicular-axis module, bevel and hypoid gears. The base software versions gears with enough detail to analyze their effects on all of those other system. Extra modules allow style and rating to AGMA, DIN and ISO requirements. For parallel-axis gears, additional 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 ideal for a variety of reporting illustrations, such as system topology and element deflection.
Bearing models provide non-linear stiffness interactions with adjacent components, which may be critical when calculating gear-support stiffness, gear-mesh misalignments and preload requirements. When calculating bearing life, the models include the effects of misalignments created through the versatility of any coupled elements. A bearing preload tool automates research of bearing life because a Driveline gearboxes function of preload. These features have been proposed for a future release.
Advanced bearing-analysis modules offer detailed analyses (ISO 281 Dietary supplement 4), including contact stress, fluid-film thickness, and stress-based existence calculation. Advanced bearings can be defined with a variety of predefined roller and raceway crowns, or with a measured crown.
