Defining Spring Connectors with Faces and Edges solidworks simulation

You can use spring connections between these types of geometric entities. Concentric cylindrical faces of shell and solidA cylinder with surfaces at the ends and solid along the entire length Springs defined in the common areas are obtained by projection. You define spring stiffness and preload forces per unit areas. …

Shrink Fitting solidworks simulation

Shrink fitting is encountered in many engineering designs. It refers to fitting an object into a slightly smaller cavity. Due to normal forces that develop at the interface, the inner object shrinks while the outer object expands. The amount of shrinkage or expansion is determined by the material properties as …
