Depending on its number of parts, you will be expected to model some or all of your design using both a CAD/CAM system and rapid prototyping. Your tutor will agree with you how much of your design you will be expected to model. Your final design should aim to optimise the manufacturing and assembly costs by the consideration of design for manufacture and assembly principles. In your final report, you will be expected to identify the areas of your design where it has added value to the end user.

The following represents the minimum that one might expect to see included in/with your report.

  • Identification of the product and a description of the new functions that add value to the end user.
  • The main stages of the design process - product design specification, concept generation, concept evaluation and selection, detail design as described below.
  • Detail and assembly drawings together with a parts list that will identify all parts, including standard bought-in components.
  • The assembly sequence for the design and the manufacturing processes that would be used to manufacture all non-bought-in parts.
  • The application of DFMA principles and analysis.
  • A physical model of your design (remember to check with your tutor regarding how much you need to model).

Identification of product and description of new function that add value

Da Vinci was not only designer but also an artist and a painter and that also reflect in his work as well .His one of the best work was propelling cart and this cart was impossible of design at that time without necessary resources .This cart is a masterpiece having perfect use of gears .All the parts of cart were recreated using solidworks CAD software . Rendering and detailed drawing of all parts are prepared for manufacturing purpose . Analysis of wheel of cart is done and comparing it for prototyping  purpose and cnc manufacturing .

DESIGN PROCESS

The main focus of design process is to recreate the prototype of 3 wheeler cart effectively considering all design aspects .   

DESIGN CONCEPT/SKETCH

Wheel

Wheel provide the rolling motion to cart , the spokes present on its centre balance center of gravity of wheel .

  • Under the design concept , a rough sketch  of 3 wheeler cart is obtained. This sketch gives us the basic idea about the product visualization. The above sketch shows that gears assembly is surrounded by frame .This frame not only kept all the parts together but also carry out all the load act upon it .1
  • 3 Wheeler cart should be designed similar to propelling cart and all the main components like spring , gears and frame should be used accordingly .
  • 3 Wheels are used in this cart , front single wheels is used for direction purpose and backward two wheels provide the motion

DESIGN SPECIFICATION

Under design specification all the parts of 3 wheeler car should be specify accordingly . All the component are explained below .

  • Truss/Frames

Truss/Frames are the structure members generally used to carry loads and coupled multiple parts in single unit for smooth operation of assembly. To carry the weight of multiple gear units , here two types of truss are used .

Truss/Frames used are:-

  1. Bottom Truss/frame
  2. Top Truss/frame
  3. Bottom truss

According to its name suggest ,bottom truss present at the bottom of gear assembly .The load of all mechanical components are directly act on this truss .At the surface of bottom truss , multiple threaded holes are present .These holes are used for mounting and rotating  gear shafts . Other holes are used to fastened the bolts with other frame . Fillets are present at corners of truss for stress reduction.

Manufacturing process -

The shape of frame is non uniform , So all the linear parts are joined together with fasteners , at necessary places holes of required diameter are drilled . Fillets are provided by using grinding operation .

DESIGN EVAUATION

As a prototype , consider the cart having speed of 10 m/second .

V =10 m/s

Cart Weight = 1000 Grams

Formula

Kinetic energy = ½ x mass of cart x velocity^2

KE =  ½ * 1000/1000 * 10*10  

K.E= 50 Joules

So this cart need 50J to reach speed of 10 m/s

But spring energy is equal to kinetic energy

S.E = K .E

½ * k *x  = 50

k = spring constant= 800 N/m

Apply values we get

x =125 mm

Dia meter of coil = 12 mm

Detail drawings, assembly drawing, and parts list

So its Perimeter = 12 x pi= 12*3.14

                    =37.7 mm

No . of rotations = 125 /37.7

                               = 4

So maximum 4 rotations needed to reach the cart to 10 m /second .

DFMA PRINCIPLES & ANALYSIS

DFMA refers to design for manufacture and assembly .DMFA is technique that focus on efficiency in manufacturing and assembly of a product by simplifying all process include under it .It main motives to manufacture and assembly the product in minimum time and at least cost .

Main principles of DFMA

  • Simplify the automation process by reducing number of parts in assembly .The 3 wheeler assembly is completely automated .
  • Encourages to use standard parts that are easily available rather than complex manufacturing that increase cost of product .In 3 wheeler assembly ,standard parts like gear ,spring , shaft hub are used .
  • Reduce the use of flexible components like gaskets, seal ,rubber . As assembly of these parts are more difficult .No flexible part used in 3 wheeler assembly .
  • Use adhesive and snap type fitting for assembly rather than fasteners .
  • To simplify manufacturing , parts design should be simple and unnecessary features on parts should be avoided .

Advantages of DFMA

  • Cost of assembly and manufacturing becomes low .
  • Time required for assembly and manufacturing is less .
  • As numbers of parts reduces then chances of parts failure also reduces therefore reliability increases .
  • High quality of product is achieved .

DESIGN VALIDATION

Consider the factor of safety is 2 and design the wheel of cart , considering its weight of 7000 grams.

Weight on wheels = 7*9.81 N = 70 N ,To maintain factor of safety is 2 , load applied should be 70 x 2 = 140 N

As Applied load is 140 N on wheels centre and check the maximum stress and deflection produced by the wheels .Diameter of shaft is 3 mm.

RESULT

As all the input parts are completed now the run the analysis and obtained the output result .

Stress

STRESS

Values of stress is given below

Minimum :-  0 MPa

Maximum :- 31.39 MPa

Deflection

DEFLECTION

Value of deflection obtain is given below

Minimum :-  0.00 mm

Maximum :- 0.166 mm

FACTOR OF SAFETY

Factor of safety is the ratio of yield stress to maximum stress generated while applying load. Yield stress is maximum permissible stress for a particular material after which deformation takes plate. Here Yield stress is 45MPa and maximum stress generated is 31.39 MPa .Although this design is safe but factor of safety value of 2 is not achieved

F.O.S = 45/31.39 =1.43

So changes need to be done to reduce the maximum stress value and achieve the factor of safety to 2

CHANGES IN DESIGN

To maintain the factor of safety of 2 and above , necessary changes need to be done accordingly .Earlier the shaft and hub of wheels having diameter of 3 mm .

According to formula below , stress is inversely proportional to Moment of inertia(I) .

Assembly sequence and manufacturing processes

For shaft

I =3.14 *D^4 /32

This shows that to reduce the value of maximum stress ,diameter of shaft need to be increased . Now in new design diameter of shaft is increased from 3 mm to 4 mm due to which stress value will reduce .

The below picture shows that diameter of shaft change to 4mm

Now kept all the procedure same i.e fixtures , loading and run the result with new design.

RESULT

As all the input parts are completed now the run the analysis and new results are obtained shown below

STRESS

Values of stress is given below

Minimum :-  0 MPa

Maximum :- 20.65 MPa

Deflection

DEFLECTION

Value of deflection obtain is given below

Minimum :-  0.00 mm

Maximum :- 0.21 mm

FACTOR OF SAFETY

Here Yield stress is 45MPa and maximum stress generated in new design is 20.65 MPa . Although this design is safe and also factor of safety value of 2 is also achieved .

F.O.S = 45/20.65 =2.17

So changes done are effective to achieve the factor of safety to 2 or more .

Conclusion

In 1st case when the diameter of shaft is 3 mm and applied load is 140 N then although the design is safe but factor of safety of 2 need to be achieved .To increase the value of factor of safety , maximum stress occurs due to applied load need to be reduced . So in new design diameter of shaft is increased from 3 mm to 4 mm so that its moment of inertia get increased and maximum stress reduced . So after increasing the diameter of shaft to 4 mm the maximum stress value reduced to20.65 MPa and factor of safety of 2 is successfully achieved . So overall design is safe .9
