Insertion/withdrawal forces

Discussion created by Thomas Flaherty on Mar 11, 2008
Hi folks,

I have a problem extracting the insertion/withdrawal forces from my non-linear pin and socket geometer after I run the analysis in Cosmos.

I am fimiliar with using Abaqus. In that program once you setup your restraints, loads and run the analysis, the results can be plotted say reaction forces vs. displacement. I have tried many different ways to get this same type of data from Cosmos but have not made any progress.

Does anyone know of a way to get this info?
