Quite new to simulation etc.
I have been asked to analyse the deflection of a plate. I have run the simulation and get 1.459mm
Now how do we go about quantifying that value? Is there a calculation that tells us what the maximum allowable deflection of a steel plate is?
The allowable deflection is up to you and is determined by your design constraints. If you don't have any design constraints regarding deflection then make a stress plot or FOS plot to ensure that the part will not fail.
