    Drop Test

    Ray Cardenas

      Hello out there,

      I was watching a video on the Drop Test Module in SW and was wondering if there was a way to drop an Impact Fixture onto a Window Lens, which is part of test we must do on this project. The videos that I've seen only have an Assy/Part being dropped onto a Rigid, or Damped floor. I would like to know if you could simulate the fixture being dropped from a height onto the the window which would be laying on the floor. Thank you for your time.

       

       

      Regards,

      Ray

          Hi Ray, drop test simulates dropping something on a virtual ground whether it is rigid or flexible.

           

          For impact, you need simulation premium to perform dynamic analyses. Most likely nonlinear dynamic unless you can simplfy the impact as a force/shock.
