The SolidWorks geometry, as provided by Cathelco, was imported into ANSYS Workbench DesignModeler. The assembly, shown in the graphics to the right, consisted of 176 parts including various fasteners.
The geometry was modified in the following ways:
The TR Unit assembly was converted to a single part within the enclosure, which was subsequently treated as a rigid body, with mass and inertia properties only. The stresses within the TR Unit were not required for this project.
Fasteners such as bolts, nuts and washers were suppressed, as was the lifting eye geometry.
Other geometric details such as holes, which were not pertinent to the stress analysis, were removed in order to simplify the meshing procedure.
