Frame with rivets. calculation and analysis

Question asked by Konstantin Naumov on Nov 28, 2018

Good afternoon team Solidworks!


We are a startup that develops a modern electric vehicle.

For the construction of the frame of this vehicle, we plan to use aluminum profiles, which are fastened together with blind rivets.

In the frame is used of about 300 elements (profiles, plates and rivets).

Question: can Solidworks Simulation help to calculate and analyze such frames are bonded in this manner (using the rivets)?

We need to calculate the required minimum number of rivets, the safety margin of the frame, to conduct dynamic tests.
