I'm trying to run an analysis to determine impact as a result of a swinging structure striking a rigid wall. I'm not really sure how to set this up, I imagine I'd be using a "Drop Test" analysis, but not sure if that is the best model to use.
Here's what I'm attempting:
I want the following model to swing in a predefined angular directction about a fixed cylinder then smash against an imaginary wall to determine the resultant stresses in the truss members associated with the impact. I have no clue how to set this up. Please help if you can
