Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards

Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards

Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards

Dealing mostly in the FEA of pressure vessels and storage tanks according to ASME/API, I am curious about what analysis Procedures and corresponding codes used in the automotive/aero/aerospace/construction and mining equipment/off-road vehicles etc.
For example how an automotive/aerospace engine/drive-train/chassis body component is analysed for static/ dynamic loads and as per which code or guidelines? Any good reference regarding the various procedures such as book,code, guidelines and online websites would be appreciated. Basically the aim is to get knowledge of other industries procedures in carrying out specific FEA, what loads constitute the specific FEA procedure, what the specific/general codes to be used.

For example if one want to analyze crank shaft of an engine, what will be the loading conditions I need to consider for both static and dynamic and as per which code of automotive if automotive engine/aerospace industry if aero engine.

RE: Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards

In automotive there are no codes. Each manufacturer will develop their own test conditions, hopefully based on failure modes they've seen in practice. In my own field many successful racing cars have been designed according to 3-2-1 (look it up), yet for a production car that is a recipe for disaster.

RE: Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards


Thanks for input. Any suggestion regarding books or guidelines on different analysis procedures for different components of automotive for example complete vehicle crash analysis or chassis analysis or NVH analysis, static and dynamic analysis?

RE: Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards

Hi I think DNV has some documents regarding FEM and ship building. But I've never used them myself (I use ASME VIII and EN 13445 which is the same but in Europe)

RE: Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards


Thanks for the input. I am aware about the DNV. It is mostly related to the marine and offshore industry. Do you know any specific standards/guidelines/books/online references relating to other fields mentioned in my post?

RE: Analysis procedures industry-wise and applicable codes/standards

Requesting all to suggest guidelines/books/references/codes for above subject fields mentioned in post.

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
