Hello everyone! I am generally very proficient in Solidworks and have little trouble figuring out how to accomplish what I need done, but this has. COSMOSWorks Professional.

When the object under study hits the floor, a stress wave originates from thepoint of impact and travels through the length of the object and then travelsback, an effect similar to the ripples when a stone hits water.

Designing occupant friendly interiors that meet requirements in both safety and style, necessitates the extensive I understand that there are many things to consider aside from static loading but I want to nail this technique down before moving cosmosworls to fatigue and vibrations. Problems exporting sweep as STEP Please send any technical comments or questions to our webmaster.

Solidworks is definitely much better than creo. This is not an add-in It creates a folder for each study, and study parameters reside in subfolders. New additive manufacturing systems for volume production with repeatable results.

For the user, running drop tests looks and feels just like doing any other COSMOSWorksanalysis; setting up a drop test is just like setting up any other study. Discrete element method simulation software enhances particle collision analysis, spring and damper motion, fiber modeling In setting up cosmksworks study, you choose either to specify the drop height that is,the distance to impact or velocity at impact, which codmosworks be defined by a motionstudy conducted prior to the drop test.

Those results may indicate time windows that need to be refined and cosmosdorks can choosethe ones to refine.


With offices in Colorado and Michigan, he can be reached at Figures 3 through 6 illustrate this stresswave progression. On the other hand, several analysis capabilities are expanded, which should appeal to more experienced users. FEA can use two approaches for solving cosmoxworks equation: 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.

Until now, determining the results of such accidents required running physicaltests that destroyed the structures under study, or else performing very difficultnonlinear and dynamic response FEA finite element analysis better suited tosimulating car crashes.

Problems with gross nonlinear behavior that requires a constant updateto the stiffness matrix are also more economical to solve with explicit methods.

Menus can also be used to accomplish all of this, but the tree is much more visual and intuitive—a good thing for new users. Real-life problems generally can be solved using either approach, but dependingon the nature of the problem, one method will be faster than the other. Jeffrey Rowe is an independent mechanical design and technical communications consultant. Define as many as what-if design scenarios. Do comsosworks use social media cosmowworks such as Facebook or Twitter updates, YouTube videos, or discussion forums — for work-related purposes?

To get the most out of the simulation, some questions should be addressed beforerunning the analysis:. The RX portfolio focuses on applicability, efficiency and scalability.

In her easy-to-follow, friendly style, long-time Cadalyst contributing editor Lynn Allen guides you through a new feature or time-saving trick coskosworks every episode of her popular AutoCAD Video Tips. An easily visualized example is the toy car shown here, which drops sothat the rear wheels hit the floor first, and cosmoswotks are followed by the front wheels,causing an initial and secondary impact.

You may be able to cut more time from analysis runs by performing a first passrun, using default settings, to obtain initial results.


Attachment My problem occurs when defining constraints and loads. CosmosWorks Shaft Analysis.

COSMOSWorks 2005

How do you select the time steps to save from your results? As illustrated in the propane tank shown in Figures 9 and 10, running a droptest in COSMOSWorks makes it easy to study the impact on objects dropped in differentorientations. View and compare the results. It 0205 the working conditions of SolidWorks models and predicts their physical behavior.

Linearproblems that have slowly varying loads with no dynamic component are more cost-effectiveor faster to solve with implicit methods.

There is a bearing surface on the first cylindrical surface blue as you move away from the center of the shaft. I applied a bearing load to the bearing surfaces and a static load to ccosmosworks wheel surfaces. Containers that carry hazardous materials, for example, have differentdesign requirements to account for being dropped in different orientations.

The time now is Perhaps you could model the bearings simply and replace the bearing constraint with “no penetration” contact elements I am performing an analysis of a shaft for a baja car which keeps breaking at a known area. Mesh the model divide codmosworks into small elements for analysis. The drop tests discussed here can account for suchmaterial behavior coupled with impact analysis. Run the study or selected design scenarios. Althoughboth approaches are equally accurate, implicit solutions of impact problems suchas dynamic drop tests take longer to solve.

Specify restraints and loads. Solution time after impact is measured in microseconds.

The default angle of the surface can be changed,and surface materials can be specified.
