I'm attempting to analyze the distribution of forces across one face of a solid body. A plate will be fastened to the body using springs, and I wish to apply a force to the plate and evaluate how the force applied at various points on this plate will influence the solid body.
As of now, I have both the body as well as the plate modeled in Solidworks. I'm not sure which add-ins I require in order to run this simulation, or if Solidworks is even the right software to use for this application.
Please let me know what my next steps should be. Is this something that Motion or Simulation or Force add-ins could help with?
