Motion simulation and FEA in Solidworks

How to combine the motion simulation and FEA simulation in Solidworks ?


The problem is like this:

1, There is one stable plate (no movement) and a ball in the air above the ball.

Using motion simulation, the bouncing trace can be obtained.

With this the impact between the ball and the plate is analyzed.


2, There is one plate excited under certain frequency vibration.

Using frequency analysis or time history analysis, the steady or dynamic vibration of the plate can be obtained.


Motor in the motion study cannot be used simply for the plate as this vibration.

According to the solidworks help, motion simulation does not consider the structure deformation.

However, this happened in the vibration.


How can I combine or communicate the information between these two situations, so that behavior of the ball on the vibrating plate (with deformation) can be obtained?


The problem for me is so complicated. I hope someone can give me some advice.


Thank you in advance.


I am looking forward to your advice.
