I'm trying to do an FEA on a shaft with a keyseat on it, I want to find the angle of twist after the shaft undergoes torsion? Does anyone know how to find the angle of twist ? Also I'd like to know what area on the shaft is best to apply the torque. Any help would be appreciated
Set your model up with cylindrical coordinates and your displacement should come out the same (I've never done this so I'm not 100% sure it will work). However, I wouldn't be surprised if you could actually apply cylindrical coordinates within the simulation.
