Statistical tolerance analysis of over-constrained mechanisms with gaps using system reliability methods
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
One of the aims of statistical tolerance analysis is to evaluate a predicted quality level at the design stage. One method consists of computing the defect probability PD expressed in parts per million (ppm). It represents the probability that a functional requirement will not be satisfied in mass production. This paper focuses on the statistical tolerance analysis of over-constrained mechanisms containing gaps. In this case, the values of the functional characteristics depend on the gap situations and are not explicitly formulated with respect to part deviations. To compute PD, an innovative methodology using system reliability methods is presented. This new approach is compared with an existing one based on an optimization algorithm and Monte Carlo simulations. The whole approach is illustrated using two industrial mechanisms: one inspired by a producer of coaxial connectors and one prismatic pair. Its major advantage is to considerably reduce computation time.

A statistical tolerance analysis approach for over-constrained mechanism based on optimization and Monte Carlo simulation Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureQURESHI, Ahmed Jawad; SABRI, Vahid; BEAUCAIRE, Paul; GAYTON, Nicolas; DANTAN, Jean-Yves (Elsevier, 2012)Tolerancing decisions can profoundly impact the quality and cost of the mechanism. To evaluate the impact of tolerance on mechanism quality, designers need to simulate the influences of tolerances with respect to the ...

For conformity assessment, the uncertainty associated with the values of the measurands must be known. In fact, ...
Impact of a behavior model linearization strategy on the tolerance analysis of over-constrained mechanisms Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureAll manufactured products have geometrical variations which may impact their functional behavior. Tolerance analysis aims at analyzing the influence of these variations on product behavior, the goal being to evaluate the ...
