This article describes the effective use of CAD/CAE in the design and analysis of a rocker arm cover system. Non-linear finite-element analysis (FEA) is used to predict the behaviour of the rocker arm cover and the associated sealing system under applied load. The geometry of the cover, which is relatively complicated, is generated with state-of-the-art commercial software and then transferred to the FEA package. The computer simulation is compared with the experimental results, and the agreement is quite satisfactory
