MEE5049 COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN TERM PROJECT Consider the clamping mechansim shown in the figure. By using the principles of statics, the clamping force (or reaction force) at E is obtained as FE=7.2P for the given dimensions. In the figure, P denotes the hand force applied by a worker. Design a clamping mechanism to obtain a clamping force as FE 9P. Use the hand force P for an avarage worker. Perform a static Finite Element Study to obtain the minimum Factor Of Safety FOS=1.8. FE Engineering Mechanics-Statics 6th Edition, J.L.Meriam, L.C. Kraige, Page 216, Prb. 4/95. Information on project delivery: Every student should prepare the project seperately. The term project will be delivered on January 7, 2016. The project files will be delivered in a CD, which will include the followings: - Solid models of the parts and the assembly model. - Power Point or Prezi (www.prezi.com) presentation file. - Finite Element Analysis Results files.
