This page covers follow-on exercises and tips to the bike crank tutorial. In particular, it shows how to add a strain gage to the ANSYS model to predict the strain that would be measured by a gage mounted on the crank model.

Strain Gage Modeling

The following video shows how to add a surface to the crank model to find the average strain over the area covered by a strain gauge mounted on the crank.


An overview of the procedure followed in the video and explanation of the associated steps can be found in this powerpoint presentation from MAE 3272, Spring 2013.

Our ANSYS Mechanical 14.0 model with a strain gage mounted can be downloaded here. Download the .wbpz file and double-click on it to load it in ANSYS Workbench. To save the file in usual .wbpj format, select File > Save as.
