Abstract

A concept for the simulation-based design of polymer parts with the ICROS method is presented. The order of simulation changes the results and the number of iterations, but there are no definitions for the exact proceedings. The engineering by intelligent cross-linked simulations (ICROS) is a guideline for the intelligent utilisation and the visualisation of possible simulation tools. A case study involving a flexible elastomer polymer coupling is presented. The durability performance of the finished part was checked in plentiful trials and the developed prototype withstood all tests. The new polymeric coupling is more than 62% lighter than the substituted aluminium coupling and transmits 315% of the desired transmittable moment of torque.

Keywords: simulation, polymers, ICROS, FEM, CAE
