Effects of Impact Loading, Shock Loading and Thermal Loading on Vertical Fiber Optic Splice Closure Using FEA
Industry : Communication Products Manufacturer
Evaluating vertical fiber optic splice closure for structural strength during impact loading, shock loading and thermal loading through finite element approach.
A 3D assembly model was developed for the fiber optic closure and finite element simulations were performed using impact loading, shock loading and thermal loading conditions as required by the client. The results identified critical stress and deformation regions and were found within permissible limits.
3D modeling accuracy to capture accurate physics during loading conditions
Ensuring proper application of boundary conditions for number of virtual tests including impact loading, shock loading and thermal loading
Maintaining accuracy and appropriateness of the FEA results to minimize physical test trials
The client is a manufacturer of various electronics & communication related products and equipment such as cables, sensors, closures etc. Their new design for splice closure needed to be validated virtually under number of loading conditions. The manufacturer as such approached Australian Design and Drafting Services to shorten their development time and seek expert help for virtual simulation testing.
The software used to perform analysis was ANSYS v14.5 Professional NLS. A 3D Assembly model of Splice Structure was created and analyzed for Various Tests: Shock Loading, Impact Loading (Equivalent Static Loading), Temperature Loading etc. The analysis was performed to determine whether the structure will withstand the Tests performed.
Shortened product development time
Reduced cost and time required in physical test trials
Provided opportunity to modify design for future applications
