A CADAM interface for the computer-aided selection of Timken tapered roller bearings
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents an interactive computer-graphics geometry interface that simplifies the tapered roller bearing selection procedure. An applications program has been developed that links the CADAM data base to SELECT-A-NALYSIS (SAN), Timken's bearing selection and analysis program. The independent modular format of the SAN preprocessor eliminates the ambiguity and difficulty associated with conventional bearing selection routines. Interactive-graphic menu selection allows program logic to be followed while design geometry is selected from a CADAM model. In addition to the discussion of the program development and structure, step-by-step instructions for an example problem are provided. Complete program listings are also supplied to facilitate future additions and modifications to the preprocessor.
