I have modelled a foot in Solidworks and wanted to simulate the forces acting on just bottom portion the foot. I know from research that majority of the forces act on the front and back part of the foot. I have set up my simulation process but I am not sure if this is correct. I dont think there is any connections on the foot model and I have made the fixtures to be a fixed geometery (Not sure if this is how it is suppose to be). Two things I would like to ask:
a) Is there any way to just apply a load just on the bottom portion of the foot ?
b) What parameters would I need to setup for a foot model in the Mesh ? Currently I have just left at default ? Is that right ?
I am not looking for direct answers or solutions, just some guidance or to some references
