    how to know the elastic limit of a flexure

    Werther Zhou

      Dear all,

      I have a thin beam, one head of which is fixed while the other end was pushed by a force.

      As we know, in the elastic zone of the beam, it will go back to the balance place when the force is removed. But it will deform permanently if the deformation is out of its elastic zone.

      My question is, how can I simulate/know the limit elastic deformation with solidworks?

      Thank you very much!
