Finite element analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool, not only from a purely engineering point of view, but also from a cost perspective.
- Hub deformation and elasticity
- Hub and bearing cups interaction, under load and temperature conditions
- Influence of the press fit
- Deflection of the shaft and deformation of the bearing cones under load and clamping conditions
- Optimization of the hub design (weight) considering afore-mentioned points
