Solidworks Simulation – Pulley Analysis with a Bearing Force

Bearing forces develop in contact areas to transfer forces from one part to another. Although you can solve problems with bearing forces as contact problems, it saves time and effort to apply them directly. In this lesson, you learn the following: Applying a bearing force automatically Listing reaction forces To get more updates on SOLIDWORKS […]

SOLIDWORKS Simulation – Working with symmetric restraints

You can use symmetry to model a portion of the model instead of the full model. The results on the un-modeled portions are deducted from the modeled portion. When appropriate, taking advantage of symmetry can help you reduce the size of the problem and obtain more accurate results. The procedures to apply the symmetry restraint […]

Solidworks Simulation- Pin connectors

An assembly consists of multiple parts connected to each other with pins, bolts, screws, or springs. Examples of assemblies with pins include laptops, scissors lifts, pliers, and actuators. To model the behavior of such assemblies, traditionally, you have to create each pin geometry and apply contact conditions between the pins and their contacting faces. In […]
