Learning Goals

In this tutorial, you will learn to:

• (e.g.: Determine the displacements and stresses in a bike crank using 3D FEA capabilities in ANSYS Mechanical)
• (e.g.: Verify the finite-element results from ANSYS by refining the mesh and also comparing with hand calculations)

Problem Specification

Currently, a design for an electronics box calls for 11 electronic boards and a battery to be enclosed. Each electronic component will generate a heat of 2.1 watts. The current design uses two fans to blow air through the box to cool the electronics. The fans blow air at a rate of 35 cubic feet per minute. The box is expected to operate in an environment where the temperature reaches a maximum of 114 degrees Fahrenheit. The main constraint on the design is that the electronic components need to be maintained below 200 degrees Fahrenheit, otherwise the components could be damaged.
