BorgWarner Inc. is a worldwide automotive industry component and parts supplier. It is primarily known for its power-train products, which include manual and automatic transmissions and transmission components, such as electro-hydraulic control components, transmission control units, friction materials, and one-way clutches, turbochargers, engine valve timing system components, along with four-wheel drive system components.
Keltia has assisted BorgWarner with both CATIA & Engineering Support.
FEA Analysis Project
Keltia was required to perform a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of an automotive component to assess the capacity to react applied torque. Three scenarios were analyzed.
Results & Recommendations
After quickly identifying the key problems. Keltia made a number of recommendations that were incorporated into a new design. these included:
- Increase the size of component features to reduce stress levels.
- Reduce stress concentration at the transitions by increasing the corner radii, or other geometrical modifications.
Due to our NDA agreement with BorgWarner were are obligated to maintain confidentiality regarding this project.
