Large Displacement Concerns and Contact Sets

Question asked by Tayte Askelsen on Jul 11, 2012



I am a novice user of simulation and have been trying to learn more through forums, but have a basic question I am hoping to have answered.


I have attached an assembly very similar to a snap ring.  I am interested in the amount of force necessary to separate the snap ring from the shaft.  I have applied a contact set between two filleted faces that will be contacting the shaft, but am getting large displacement errors.  Is there anyway to simulate and find the force when the snap ring will dislodge from the shaft?


Can anyone guide me in how this should be set up to give more accurate results?



Thank you,
