    Solidworks Simulation: no penetration question

    Gianni Nardoia

      Hello everybody,

      I'm involved in a load lifting by fork-lift problem. It's request to limit deformation of the load when lifted. Between loads and forks I have placed two "frames" in order to distribute load to forks. Anything in the solution is quite good but what is alarming is the graphic representation: Load deformation dosn't followes frame deformations as it's shown in the pics but one of the two loads penetrate both frames. Of course it's a scale effect...but even with a realistic scale the loads penetrate.

       

      Just some information about model connections:

      1) forks-frames: no penetration

      2) frames-loads: no penetration (at first I modeled this contact as bounded but without any difference)

       

      Is there anybody that can suggest what maybe happening?

       

      ps: model is also attached.

       

      Thank you.
