Selecting All Exposed Faces solidworks simulation

When applying thermal loads, you can select all of the exposed faces simultaneously. This option is available in the Temperature, Convection, Radiation, Heat Flux and Heat Power PropertyManagers. Click Select all exposed faces. In assembly documents, you can apply thermal loads to faces of all components. The software ignores fully-contacting …

Using Bearing Connectors solidworks simulation

Use a bearing connector when the housing is not much stiffer than the shaft. If the components supporting the shaft are much more rigid than the shaft, use a bearing fixture. When defining a bearing connection, follow these guidelines: You define a bearing connection between two bodies. For additional bodies, …

Thermal Effects for Bolt Connectors solidworks simulation

After a thermal study, the temperatures are imported into a static study for thermal stress analysis. Simulation treats the thermal expansion or contraction of bolt connectors as follows. Simulation prescribes to bolt connectors the same reference temperature at zero strain as for the rest of the assembly (T0) (see the …

Connector – Bolt solidworks simulation

A Bolt can connect two components, multiple components, or a component and the ground. You can define bolts through a mixed stack of solids, shells and sheet metal bodies. You can also define a bolt by selecting entities of the same component. Example   Type Standard or Counterbore with Nut …

Remote Load solidworks simulation

You can use this option when the omitted component is adequately flexible but its displacements are still within the small displacement assumption. Remote loads (forces and/or moments) are applied at a point defined by the X-, Y-, and Z-locations in reference to a selected coordinate system. The global coordinate system …
