    Leaf Spring/Laminated Spring Simulation HELP

    Filipe Casimiro
      Hello,

      I'm using SW2009 with Simulation cause I need to perform some analysis in order to see how leaf springs will act/deform when it move along being compressed by two rotating cylinders.

      See this example for better understanding:





      Is it possible to simulate this procedure?
      I've already try to perform some studies without moving the leaf, only make pressur at it with the top cylinder (bottom cylinder was fixed), but I'm not getting results, and it tell me that I have to much displacements or it don't find any solution.

      Can, give me some tips to do that?

      Tanks in advance and sorry my English! (I'm from Portugal)

      Regards

      Filipe
