    Cylinder Forces FEA

    Rudolf Van den Berg

      Good day

       

      Just need some clarity on this matter.

       

      When working with a cylinder in a assembly, I need to analyze the frame under the forces of the cylinder.

      Link below is the assembly, I already did an FEA on it, just need some confirmation if the way I am applying the forces are correct.

      Let say I have calculated that the force of the cylinder is around 20 000 N.

       

       

      I know in a motion analysis you have the option of action/Reaction forces which can be used to represent a cylinder.

       

      Any advice or feedback would be appreciated.

      Kind regards
