Inaccurate result with simulation premium

I am new to nonlinear simulation and plastic.


What should I do to get closer to real life performance.


I set-up PP material with stress strain curve

I set-up model with a single load and fixture

I am testing plastic buckets.

My simulation are showing very high stress.

My plastic handle breaks with 1000 to 1200N in lab test.

My FEA simulation is showing about 60N.


My plastic bucket is failling with 10000N in real life.

During simulation I reaching limit around 1000N and the simulation step because deformation are too large.


I am using SP2.1  Solidworks 2015
