Editing Analysis Library Features solidworks simulation

You can change which features are included as part of an analysis library feature in the library feature part or assembly document (*.sldalprt and *.sldalasm respectively). You can edit an existing library feature and save it with a new name (and extension) to create additional, similar library features. After the …

Flow Rule solidworks simulation

Through adoption of the logarithmic strain definition, the deviatoric and volumetric components of the strain and stress tensors and their relations can be correctly expressed in a decoupled form. First, we consider the total plastic & elastic strain vectors to be presented by:ε(bar)p = εul ξs( n(bar) + α*m(bar)) ε(bar)e(bar) …

Hyperelastic Blatz-Ko Model solidworks simulation

The Blatz-Ko strain energy density function is useful for modeling compressible polyurethane foam type rubbers and can be expressed as: A specific form of this three-parameter family of elastic potential was later proposed in which the following values of the constants α, β, and ν were assumed: α = 0.5, …

Plasticity von Mises Model solidworks simulation

The yield criterion can be written in the form:  where  is the effective stress and σY is the yield stress from uniaxial tests. The von Mises model can be used to describe the behavior of metals. In using this material model, the following considerations should be noted: Small strain plasticity …

Assumptions of Linear Elastic Material Models solidworks simulation

Linear elastic material models follow the linearity and elasticity assumptions. Linearity Assumption The induced response is directly proportional to the applied loads. For example, if you double the magnitude of loads, the model’s response (displacements, strains, and stresses) will double. You can make the linearity assumption if the following conditions …

Creating a Material simulation

A material library is a database containing information about each material. SolidWorks provides a read-only library, SolidWorks Materials, and a library in which you can create custom materials, Custom Materials. You can create additional libraries to store custom materials. To create a library: In a part document, right-click Material in …

Guidelines on Studies with Contact Conditions solidworks simulation

achieved by merging nodes when the mesh is compatible or by using multi-point restraints internally when the mesh is not compatible. Bonding incompatible meshes can generate local stress concentrations in the bonded areas. When bonding solid faces through the global contact condition, the program generates a compatible mesh on the …

Node to Node Contact solidworks simulation

Facts about node to node contact: Available only for faces that are initially touching. Requires compatible mesh. The program creates coincident nodes on source and target faces. This contact formulation is available with the No Penetration contact type for static, nonlinear, and thermal studies. For static and nonlinear studies, this …

Load History Curve solidworks simulation

The Load History Curve dialog box allows you to define a load history curve for use with variable amplitude fatigue event. Use the Scale entry in the Add Event (Variable) PropertyManager to relate the amplitude to the load applied in the study. Curve Information Sets the name and type of …

Interaction of Thermal Studies with Other Studies solidworks simulation

Interaction of thermal studies with static, nonlinear, or transient thermal studies accommodates dissimilar meshes. After obtaining the temperature distribution from a thermal analysis with certain mesh properties, you can import the temperature data to a static, nonlinear, or transient thermal study with different mesh properties. The figures show a finer …
