COSMOSWorks drop test simulations also support plasticity, so that design engineerscan determine such permanent deformations as dents after impact.

However, youcan change that angle and, if desired, enter data about any friction the fallingobject would experience when hitting the floor. Because each simulation can have tens of thousands of time steps, itmakes sense only to save the important ones.

Figures 9 and Applying a restraint to any other part of the shaft results in an unrealistic deformation in other ways. Can you upload a pic of the results and a pic of the failure for comparison?

Designing occupant friendly interiors that meet requirements in both safety and style, necessitates the extensive On one hand, this version simplifies several of the analysis processes for newer users.

The speed gained through technology and through ease of use makes it simple forusers to run drop tests on their designs, and adds a welcome dimension to overallupfront simulation.

It’s refreshing to review a product that has no pretense of being something “entirely new and. An easily visualized example is the toy car shown here, which drops sothat the rear wheels hit the floor first, and then are followed by the front wheels,causing an initial and secondary impact.


Comosworks the analysis type and options.

Define as many as what-if design scenarios. Most users won’t outgrow its capabilities because the more they use it and become better acquainted with its settings and how to interpret its results, the more they discover what it can do.

What is mechanical cad? Once this is accomplished, the same technique can be used to model new shafts in the future and analyze them before producing anything physical. For how long after impact should one observe or capture the solution?

By itself the drop test study won’t automatically predict if a model will break or how components might separate on impact. On cosmoswofks other hand,explicit techniques have the drawback of requiring very small time incrementsto provide a good, stable solution. No rotations of the model can be considered until the initial impact occurs.

Complex nonlinear analysis technology underlies ease of use. Do you use social media — such as Facebook or Twitter updates, YouTube videos, or discussion forums — for work-related purposes? Analysis results can be viewed as contour plots of stress, displacement, and strains for all locations on a model, or at preselected locations such as vertices and reference points. Japazo, So, you have a radial load on the green surfaces and a bearing constraint on the blue?

In setting up the study, you choose either to specify the drop height that is,the distance to impact or velocity at impact, which can be defined by a motionstudy conducted prior to the drop test.


Solution time after impact is measured in microseconds. The time now is I am performing an analysis of a shaft for a baja car which keeps breaking at a known area. COSMOSWorks now makes it possible for design engineers to run upfront droptests on their designs easily and quickly, despite the fact that running theminvolves studying tens of thousands of very short time steps to capture the resultswithin microseconds of the impact.

coamosworks Until now, determining the results of such accidents required running coosmosworks that destroyed the structures under study, or else performing very difficultnonlinear and dynamic response FEA finite element analysis better suited tosimulating car crashes. This article examines what a design engineerneeds to do to perform such a test, what kind of results he or she will obtain,and explores the technology behind such simulations. With all of this capability, the program is surprisingly easy to learn and use.

Solidworks is definitely much better than creo. This is especially helpfulwhen designing containers that carry hazardous materials, such as these propanetanks. I understand that there are many things to consider aside from static loading but I want 2050 nail this technique down before moving on to fatigue and vibrations.
