A colleague of mine sent me some parts to do a non-linear FEA study on. They are 6061-T6 components, where one has its rim crimped over a mating component. The object of the study is to find out how much force is required to crimp the rim. I am fairly new to SolidWorks simulation and I’m not really sure where to even begin. Could anyone walk me through the setup process, or point me to a tutorial that is similar to what I am trying to achieve?
Thanks in advance for the help!
