Remote mass in static analysis

Question asked by Jaspreet Hothi on Apr 3, 2012

I am analysing a chasis which sees G forces in all the 3 axes. I would like to use remote mass for the components not included in the analysis. My question is since I am doing only linear static analysis at this time should I input values for moments of inertia? If I give a remote mass and a G force with a direction, will the software calculate appropriate force due to that G force in static analysis?


Any insight is greatly appreciated.
