Title : Shape optimization for GW hyena bicycle rod by software Autodesk Inventor

Abstract :

The cranks are the propellant component of the transmission of a bicycle that converts the reciprocal movement of the cyclist's legs into the rotation movement. The objective of the article is to evaluate the characteristics of the part through FEA once the form optimization is applied. Initially the conditions to which it would be prone to fail are determined. With the optimization of shape, the connecting rod weight was reduced by 13% without affecting its mechanical properties
