    dynamic simulation

    Jeroen Van Ostaeyen

      is their a way to prefor a dynamic simulation on a shaft to see if their is going to be anny tearing in the shaft cause it has a notch next to where the pully is.

      so i want to apply and take a way the force multiple times to see if its going to tear cause with a static load its strong enhouhg


      kind regards

          I would just work it out by hand. Let Simulation find the stress, estimate the endurance limit,  and then look at your S-N DIagram to see what kind of life you are going to get. You don't need to worry about the notch sensitivity, since SolidWorks is already calculating the real stresses in the corners.
