What is the value for N/m/m^2 for 85 durometer polyurethane to enter in static simulation for elastic supports?
What are the units N/m/m^2 in elastic support anyways? I can't find any information to pull values for this anywhere.
Units of (N/m)/m^2 are stiffness per unit area. This corresponds to the 'Distributed' option in an Elastic Support.
I suggest taking a look at the following Help topic as a starting point:
2019 SOLIDWORKS Help - Connector - Elastic Support
Here's an excerpt from the Help:
Distributed The value of the stiffness per unit area. The equivalent total stiffness equals the common area of projection multiplied by the distributed stiffness.
You may also find the following SOLIDWORKS Knowledge Base (KB) solutions useful:
