Abstract
One-armed planet carrier's static stress analysis and modal analysis were accomplished by the finite element method. The deformation, stress magnitude and distribution and natural frequency of the planet carrier were obtained. Under the condition of satisfying the ultimate strength and fatigue life, the planet carrier is optimized to get a lightweight structure. The optimized results showed the optimized planet carrier increases the amount of maximum deformation of 0.512um, maximum stress increased by 143.271MPa and natural frequency increased by 0.4879Hz. In the first mode of the modal analysis, the total distortion is reduced by 82.5%, mass and volume is reduced by 37.56%. But the optimization improved the performance and transmission efficiency of the planet carrier and realized the purpose of lightweight.
