i want to know how to add dead load of 4000N on the highlighted portion on the attached image. its actually base of a machine. the flat portion carries a dead load. Can anyone help me please? thanks.
Shankar, please send me an email.
[See attached PDF for information about how to take dead loads into account in fatigue analysis]
Dead loads are considered those which are permanently applied to a structure, and acting at all times.
Dead loads in Fatigue analysisIn fatigue analysis, the Live load typically creates an alternating stress and a mean stress (unless the load is fully reversed, in which case the mean stress is null). The dead load, however, only creates a mean stress. The mean stress caused by the dead load adds to the mean stress caused by the live load. Altogether, the overall mean stress has an effect on the fatigue life, which is different from the mean stress from the live load alone. The difference can be significant and should therefore be taken into account.
What is the purpose of this analysis? Have you done any training in the use of Simulation? Are you an engineer? What is your understanding of a dead load?
What is an AE and can you address my other questions.
i have undergone simulation designer training
by dead wt i mean load that u apply to balance the system
i am a mechanical engg
Hi Joe, the PDF you referring to, i am thinking of using the method in my report, do you have information on the source? Who wrought it or where can i find the original article i guess its (Article ID: x413) but where do i find it? Thanks a lot!
Who hath wrought with iron and sweat to create such a glorious article? (Sorry, I couldn't resist the temptation to break out in Shakespearean language. Actually I only know one language really well, being English, to communicate so I am jealous of you for that, assuming your mother tongue is Danish.)
"Wrote" is the word you should have used. Wrought means to beat metal with a hammer into shape, like a blacksmith would do.
If you log into the Customer Portal, then go to the Knowledge Base, you can search using solution ID: S-020570
A link to the article can be found there. So this is where there is public access to the Article ID: x413.
You could attribute the article to Julien Boissat, who is on our tech support team. In the credits for an internal knowledge base, he writes:
Articles are written by the staff from the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Group, including the Tech Support department and the Product Management department.
New articles as well as old articles' revisions are authored by Julien Boissat, with help from other colleagues from SOLIDWORKS.
That is completely fine , but I only understood the first part you “wrought”? Haha, Yes I am Danish and a bit word blind, I will try to improve my spelling Sorry!
Thanks a lot for the answer and lesson!
