    Material in Solidworks

    Matthew Morona

      Hi I am just having a little trouble trying to enter a material into solidwoks to run a simulation, I need to simulate a part made from HA250 grade hot rolled steel, however I don't have all the parameters available to me only which is displayed in the image which is what the supplier has provided. I have tried calculating strain, modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio from this information but when I run the FEA it has deformed as though it is made from play doe. I am clearly doing something wrong but am unable to see exactly what. Is HA250 hot rolled steel named as something already defined in Solidworks?

       

      Any help would be great.

       

      Cheers.
