Guidelines for Selecting a Failure Criterion solidworks simulation

Guidelines for selecting the appropriate Failure Criterion to calculate the Factor of Safety of your design. Failure Criterion Evaluation Theoretical predictions for failure of lamina are compared with experiments by comparing failure envelopes (outside the envelope, lamina failure occurs) under various biaxial states of stress. A lamina is assumed to …

Maximum von Mises Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

The maximum von Mises stress criterion is based on the von Mises-Hencky theory, also known as the Shear-energy theory or the Maximum distortion energy theory. In terms of the principal stresses σ1, σ2, σ3, the von Mises stress is expressed as: σvonMises= {[( σ1 – σ2 )2 + ( σ2 …

Showing Hidden or Excluded Bodies in Plots solidworks simulation

When plotting results of assemblies with hidden or excluded bodies, you can view the results on the other components in the context of the whole assembly by showing the hidden or excluded bodies in translucent colors with controlled levels of transparency. Plot the desired result in an assembly document that …
