    Is it possible to simulate a cantilever beam under vibration

    Cicero Lobo

      Hello guys,


      I need to put a cantilever beam array under vibration on Solidworks.


      Please find the screenshot of the part attached in this message.


      So, I know where I have to put the fixtures, I know where I have to put the external loads. But, I do not know what type of external load I should use.


      In the real world this part is going to be placed on a electromagnetic shaker and I'm going to measure the deflection in the end of the beam that is produced through the vibration. However, I want to estimate that using SolidWorks. I thought about using an external force like a senoidal force and I could set the frequency of this force, so, this would be like the vibration from the shaker.. what do you guys think about that?


      Thank you!!!
