KISSsoft Basic and Advanced Training
(March 6-7, 2018)Bubikon, Switzerland. The focus of the introduction is placed on the handling of the software and its user interface. The objective of the first day is to understand the input fields including the underlying theory, to understand the messages created during the calculation process and how to interpret the results in graphics and reports. The second part goes deeper into the sizing and optimization of shafts and bearings. The extended calculation possibilities in KISSsoft such as coaxial shaft systems, thermally critical speeds and even tooth trace modifications based on shaft deflection will be explained. The determination of bearing lifetime and stiffness will occupy a significant part. Participants will get an insight into different service life calculation methods including inner geometry, taking into account bearing stiffness and tilting under load and even contact stress in ring material.
