COUPLE is a great ally when you want to examine different design variants. In fact, you can easily create the topology of your assembly, compute the results, modify the topology, compute the results again and compare them. For example, you can compare different e-motors by just replacing them in the design area or study different mounting conditions by adding and changing mounts.
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:
The next step consists of modeling the first variant. This includes:
To create the assembly topology, complete the next steps:
To name the design variant, complete the next steps:
To compute the coupling, complete the next steps:
After computing the results of the first variant, you can edit the topology in the design area to recreate the second variant.
To replace models and compute the second variant, complete the next steps:
You can repeat these steps multiple times to study multiple design variants.
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.
