Projects Overview

Design Beams


You will design three different types of beams based on the drawing. A static analysis will be carried out to determine the best of the three based on the given boundary condition. You will interpret why the beam is best.


  • Model 3 different types of beams in SOLIDWORKS
  • Beams are subjected to bending under give load condition
  • Post-process the results and suggest the best one



Buckling Analysis


You will do the buckling analysis for the cyclonic separator stand to determine the stress, deformation, and the buckling factor of safety. Then a stiffener will be added to the stand and the design study is carried out to find the best location for the stiffener based on the buckling factor of safety. 


  • The stand of a cyclonic separator is subjected to a buckling analysis
  • An additional member is added to the stand and analyzed
  • The buckling factor of safety is calculated and the design study is carried out to achieve the better buckling factor of safety


Static Analysis


    Static structural analysis is carried out to determine the stress concentration of a plate with a single hole and three holes.

    • Static Analysis is performed on plates with holes
    • Two different models are used here
    • The model is solved to obtain Stress, strain, and displacement

    Frequency Analysis


    A rotating shaft is subjected to frequency analysis and the resonance frequency is determined. 

    • Frequency analysis is performed on a rotating shaft by providing appropriate fixtures
    • The critical frequencies of the shaft are found out
