Rigidity study possible?

Discussion created by Robin Boudreault on Mar 12, 2009

I want to make a rigidity study. I mean putting a load with rigid remote load (load is outside the part) and find back the displacement of this load. I'd like to compare 2 parts (rigidity vs weight).

My only alternative is to make another part threated as solid and bonded to my grasping points, putting a point load on this part and finding its displacement at this same point after a regular stress analysis. This seems cumbersome for something usual for me.

There is no way to put a remote load, find back the displacement of this remote load and get the force/displacement ratio directly?
