Summary of Force and Torque Load solidworks simulation

Load Type Loaded Geometric Entities Reference Geometry Entities Required Input Normal Force Uniform Faces of solids and shells, and edges of shells N/A Unit and value of the force. The program applies the specified force to EACH entity. Nonuniform Faces Coordinate system to define intensity Unit and value of the …

Modifying a Pressure Load solidworks simulation

To modify a pressure load: In the Simulation study tree, right-click the pressure load you want to modify and select Edit Definition, or double-click the pressure load. The Pressure PropertyManager appears. Make the desired changes. Click .

Circular Symmetry solidworks simulation

Circular symmetry allows you to analyze a model with circular patterns around an axis by modeling a representative segment. The segment can be a part or an assembly . The geometry, restraints, and loading conditions must be similar for all other segments making up the model. Turbine, fans, flywheels, and …

Using a Model Edge solidworks simulation

You can use a straight model edge as a reference to apply restraints. You can prescribe the translation in the direction of the edge. For shell meshes, you can also specify rotation about the edge. The following table summarizes the attributes of this restraint type: Example The selected face of …

Preventing Rigid Body Motion solidworks simulation

Models that are not adequately restrained can translate or rotate freely. In general, each component has 3 translational and 3 rotational rigid body modes. For an assembly, the 6 rigid body modes of every component should be prevented. The following factors contribute to preventing rigid body modes: Displacement restraints Study …

Defining Ply Thickness as a Parameter solidworks simulation

You can define the thickness of each ply as a parameter. You can then use it as a variable in the Design Study. In the Simulation study tree, under the Parts folder, right-click a shell and select Edit Definition. In the PropertyManager, under Type, select Composite. Under Composite Options, in …

Relative Ply Angles solidworks simulation

You can define ply angles for a stack relative to the first ply. To define ply angles relative to the first ply, in the Shell Definition PropertyManager, under Composite Options, select Ply angles relative to ply 1. The first ply angle is always absolute. The image shows an example of …

Composite Laminate as an Orthotropic Material solidworks simulation

A composite laminate is a special orthropic material that is modeled as a single surface with several layers of orthotropic materials. A cross-ply carbon fiber-reinforced polymer is an example of a composite laminate with orthotropic material properties for each ply. A rock is an example of an orthotropic material that …

Standard Fixtures solidworks simulation

Fixed Geometry Restrains the selected edges or vertices from moving along the two perpendicular directions on the plane. No restraints are applied along the normal direction to the section plane.   Fixed Hinge Restrains the selected circular edge so that it can rotate about its own axis only. Roller/Slider Restrains …

Assigning Materials as Variables solidworks simulation

After you create material parameters and link the bodies whose material will be parameterized, you specify a material or group of materials to apply. In the Variable View of a design study, you can apply a group of materials to each material parameter. In the Table View, you can apply …
