Simulation and Finite Element Analysis of a Generic Damping System

An analysis of a generic damping system is developed through finite element simulations. The analysis is divided into three stages: a structural static analysis, a modal analysis based on the stationary structural analysis, and a structural transient analysis aimed at obtaining the deformation profile of the damping system. An instantaneous force was applied to simulate the impact effect on the generic damper. Consequently, the obtained results allow us to present the maximum permissible load for the system, based on a safety factor criterion of 1.4 for this study. Additionally, we showcase stress and deformation profiles, natural frequency modes, and a transient analysis of deformations. Notable conclusions underscore the advantages of simulating this type of behavior for complex systems.
