Authors: Ying Liu, Yunfei Chen
Abstract: In order to check the riveting strength of the inner drum of a cylinder washing machine connected by flanging riveting, a finite element analysis model was establish based on ANSYS. Under the worst condition, the inner drum was conducted statics simulation to obtain its stress distribution. Test points were selected in the riveting area for both simulation and experiment. Experimental tests were conducted on three washing machines and the experimental results were compared with the simulation results to verify the simulation results. Finally, the most vulnerable failure positions of the inner drum were obtained.
