FEA Dynamic Impact Analysis on Cooler


Perform Finite Element Analysis (FEA) drop test dynamic structure stress analysis on the cooler assembly. This involves simulating the impact of the cooler assembly dropping from a certain height to understand the stress, deflection, and potential damage it could endure.


Two primary objectives guide this analysis:


Evaluate the likelihood of fracture or permanent deformation propagating to the internal volume of the cooler assembly upon impact. This is done by applying dynamic load conditions in the FEA model that replicate the forces experienced during a drop. The stress analysis identifies the areas with the highest stress, which are most likely to be the initiation points for any fracture. Deformation analysis further helps us understand if any permanent deformation could reach the internal volume, thereby compromising the functionality of the cooler assembly.


Assess any specific risks to the seal interface presented by the drop scenarios. The seal interface is crucial for the cooler assembly’s performance. Therefore, the simulation carefully examines the stress and strain at the seal interface to determine if the drop could lead to seal failure or compromise its integrity.


This drop test analysis allows us to identify potential weak points in the design, where enhancements might be necessary. If the analysis reveals a significant risk of fracture, permanent deformation, or damage to the seal interface, design modifications can be recommended to improve the cooler assembly’s durability and performance during accidental drops. This FEA dynamic structure stress analysis is essential for ensuring the robustness and reliability of the cooler assembly under real-world conditions.
