tectos also offers calculation tools as a product for its goods and services.

 

tShaft

tectos tool for the calculation of torsional vibrations

If a new motor is to be tested on the test rig, choosing a shaft with the right characteristics can be very challenging. Here, not only the corresponding torques have to be transferred but also the relevant levels of stiffness and distributions of the mass inertia have to be taken into account correctly. tShaft is an efficient analysis tool that selects the optimum shaft for an engine on a given test rig. Only a few parameters can be used to define all current motor types. The user can also use integrated estimation routines to determine unknown parameters.

tWrencH

TWrencH enables running time-optimized FE modeling of rolling bearings. Modeling with tWrencH offers various advantages when specific bearings are considered, yet detailed modeling remains unpractical. The models use simplified geometries for the inner and outer ring. The rolling elements are imaged by means of nonlinear springs. It requires radial and axial load-displacement curves as input variables for the adjustment of bearing stiffness.
