Join Tony Abbey for an in-depth discussion in this video Sheet metal run, part of SOLIDWORKS: Shell and Beam Modeling in FEA.
- [Instructor] Now continuing from the previous video,…we're going to run the analysis for the mesh created…from the sheet metal body.…So we run the study under the stress one results.…We edit the definition, change to x at the top, check OK.…I come into plot tools, probe,…pick any element in the center.…The value is 1,250 PSI, which is correct, so click OK.…Under stress one, edit the definition again.…Let's choose bending, check OK,…and we can see clearly that everything is a computed zero.…
So there are no bending stresses in this particular example.…Now the shell elements in this case are aligned…with the loading and the reaction points,…so there's no virtual offsets, so there's no spherus bending…occurring due to in-plane loading.…I mentioned in a previous video we're going to investigate…the application of the loads and the constraints…a little bit more using sheet metal bodies.…When we were dealing with surfaces from geometry,…with offsets, we had to mesh on a specific surface,…and the loads and constraints also had to be applied…
In this course, instructor Tony Abbey explains how to work with shell and beam models in SOLIDWORKS. Learn when to use shell, beam, and specialized truss elements; understand the fundamentals of modeling with them; and find out how to mesh, postprocess, and model components with these tools. Tony shows how to set up and run these FEA simulations to test the integrity of your designs and view results such as stress, force, and displacement.
