    Force required to cut a wire?

    Naveen Rawat

      Dear all

                     I want  to  cut a spring steel wire of 5mm with a tool from a certain hieght of 1/2 feet . so i need to find out the required force to cut the same wire.

      so how can i get the result for that with Solid Works simulation as well as hand calculations..

      Spring is fixed before the point where tool attacks in a cylndirical body. and moving forward with very slow rate.

      Please see the picture.
