List Reaction Force solidworks simulation

You can list reaction forces on selected entities for an active static, nonlinear, drop test and dynamic study. The software lists the X-, Y-, Z-components of the reaction force, and the resultant reaction force on the selected entities and on the entire model as well.

To list reaction forces, after running the analysis, right-click Results and select List Result Force. In the PropertyManager, under Options select Reaction force.

You can also click Results Advisor > List Result Force (Simulation CommandManager).

Selection

Plane, Axis or Coordinate System Lists the results relative to the selected entity.
Units Sets the output units.
Faces, Edges, or Vertices Lists the reaction forces for the selected entities.
Components Lists the reaction forces for the selected components.
joint.png Joints Available for beams joints with applied fixtures. Lists the reaction forces at the selected beam joints.
Time Step Available only with nonlinear, drop test and dynamic studies. Sets the time step number at which you want to list the reaction force.
Available for nonlinear, drop test and modal time history studies. Displays the time corresponding to the selected plot step.
Available for harmonic and random vibration studies. Displays the frequency corresponding to the selected plot step.
Update Updates the results based on the current selected entities.

Reaction Force

Lists the X-, Y-, Z- components of the reaction force, and the resultant reaction force on the selected entities and on the entire model.

Response Graph time_curve.png Available only with nonlinear, drop test and dynamic studies. Creates 2D time history plots for the X-, Y-, Z- components of the reaction force, and the resultant reaction force on the selected entities and on the entire model.

Reaction Moment

Lists the X-, Y-, Z- components of the reaction moment, and the resultant reaction moment on the selected entities and on the entire model.

Response Graph time_curve.png Available only with nonlinear, drop test and dynamic studies. Creates 2D time history plots for the X-, Y-, Z- components of the reaction moment, and the resultant reaction moment on the selected entities and on the entire model.

Display Options

Display resultant forces Converts the three force vectors (X-, Y- and Z- components) to a resultant force vector. Only the resultant force vector is displayed.
