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.
