COUPLE is a great ally when you want to examine different design variants. In fact, you can easily create the topologies of your different variants and compute the results all at once to compare them. For example, you can compare different e-motors by just duplicating the variant and replacing the engine model. You can also study different mounting conditions by adding stiffness to the links between components.
To study different design variants, you have to complete the following steps:
The first step consists in setting up all the needed models in the library. This consists of:
To create a new library from scratch, complete the next steps:
To add a model to a library and set the interfaces, complete the next steps:
To create the assembly topology, complete the next steps:
You can rename the variant by right-clicking on the top tab and selecting Rename.
After designing the first variant, you can create new ones in different tabs.
To create a new variant, complete the next steps:
If your following variant has minor differences from the previously designed one, you can duplicate the existing variant by right-clicking on its tab and selecting Duplicate.
To compute the coupling, complete the next steps:
To analyze the results, complete the next steps:
You can also plot one or multiple datasets by dragging and dropping them in the Graphs area.
