Spring Curve Generation, Force vs. Displacement

Question asked by Justin Blumer on Aug 23, 2012

Hello, I'm attempting to simulate a Unidirectional Fiberglass Spring so we can modify it as needed to effect the spring curve. Currently I've been using Solidworks simulation to generate a time variable force on a simple (not unidirectional) cantelever spring to test to see if this is possible.

 

Is it within the capabilities of solidworks to generate a displacement over time graph for a specified node of the mesh? If so, how? If not, are there programs capable of modeling, and simulating such a spring and generating such a curve?

 

Thank you for your assistance.
