Using the MEboost Shaft Design Tool

MEboost’s shaft design tool allows for comprehensive analysis of shaft designs.  The shaft design tool allows for the following analysis: Static stress. Deflection and slope. Stress life fatigue analysis for infinite life. Static and fatigue stress concentrations. Critical speed calculation. For more general information on shaft design, see shaft design considerations. Shaft Design Tool Coordinate …

Presenting Simulation Results

Presenting the results of a Monte Carlo simulation can be challenging when your audience isn’t inclined to receive probabilistic information.  Decision makers often want a single number for net present value, project completion date, or profit. How do we as the modeler/analyst present this information so it is understood and appreciated for the extra information …

Using the MEboost Tolerance Calculator

The MEboost tolerance calculator allows you to see the potential rejection rate given a probability distribution for a dimension.  This allows you to estimate rejection rate while balancing the necessary tolerance for functionality. A tolerance range is specified by a range of sigmas (standard deviation) around the nominal dimension, or you can directly specify the …
