    Problem with solving multi hollow profile, fea

    Anssi Syrjala

      Hello.

       

      Im quite new to FEA feature in Solidworks. I'v been trying to figure out how does my beam endure static loads while the beam is lying on solid ground and how it will deform as enough force is applied. My beam is a multi hollow profile and i havent got the displacement look quite right.

       

      I have made a simplification of the profile and got it to mesh quite nicely. For a fixture I'v made the bottom face as a fixed geometry. Then as a external load i defined 1000N on the top face.

       

      Any suggestion what im doing wrong and how to fix things are well appreciated.

       

      Thanks
