Use the split tool command in order to specify the exact area the load is being applied to.

Loads The solidworkks step is to apply a force or pressure to a particular area on the model. You are then able to begin your study! Before you run the study you have the ability to change the mesh settings. Note that running a study within SimulationXpress allows for linear static analysis only.

simullationxpress Once the study has been solved, the displacement of the geometry is automatically animated. By choosing to continue, you are then able to view the stress, displacement and factor of safety of the studied geometry as seen below. The next step is to apply a force or pressure to a particular area on the model. So non-linear plastic deformation is not taken into account.

Once you have chosen this you are now ready to run the study! The wizard helps walk the user through setting up and simulationxprsss the study step by step, so even if you are unfamiliar with the process of running a FEA study, the fundamentals are explained thoroughly.

This is a great tool for the beginner! We hope you found that useful!

Based in Cambridge we have a central location to service a UK wide customer base. Latest posts by Innova Systems see all. At least one selection must be made.

You also have two options; to continue, or to go back and edit the study parameters. Although the tool is included within the simulatiojxpress, it still needs to be activated.

The first step to running your analysis is to select where on your model you would like to fix the geometry. Fixtures The first step to running your analysis is to select where on your model you would like to fix the geometry. In order for the study to calculate accurate stress and displacement results it requires the material properties, such as the elastic modulus and yield strength.

The first time it is loaded, the following screen appears: Results Once the study has been solved, the displacement of the geometry is automatically animated. Note that the deformation is usually largely scaled up in order to display the results clearly. This then needs to be inserted into the simulationxpres below the link on the activation window as seen in image 2.

As seen in Image 4, one face has been selected. In both cases, a face is the only tutoriial available.

This affects the accuracy of the results, so the finer the mesh, the higher the accuracy of results, but the time taken to solve is longer. This scale can be seen and edited within the top left of the graphics window. This is a great tool in terms of calculating the load impacts on a design and in general evaluating the performance of your model, eliminating the need for so many prototypes etc.

Now that the product has been activated, the SimulationXpress wizard appears within the task pane on the right hand side of the interface. This face is then populated with purple arrows displaying the area and direction of the load being applied.

Please note that all simulation results are approximate and need to be verified by real life results. If studies on more advanced geometry are required, further Simulation packages are available. The first time it is loaded, the following screen appears:. Run Before you run simulatiknxpress study you have the ability to change the mesh settings.

Material In order for the study to calculate accurate stress and displacement results it requires the material properties, such as the elastic modulus and yield strength. The face is then populated with green arrows explaining all 6 DOF have been removed, thus fixing the geometry.
