    Accelerations to Mass of Structure

    Lakhvinder Singh

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to do a static analysis on a skid a structure as per DNV codes with SolidWorks Simulation. I need to apply 0.75g in all three directions (X, Y, Z) to the mass of the structure. The details are:

       

      1. The structure has a mass of 20,000 Kgs in reality (due to euipment inside it). To get the actual mass on the structure I have over rided the mass properties and added mass to the structure at its actual CG location. Now the structure has "actual" mass of 20,000 Kgs.

       

      2. As said above, now I need to apply 0.75g in all three directions (X, Y, Z) to the mass of the structure. Like +X, +Y, +Z, the next one will be +X, +Y, -Z, and then it will be -X, +Y, +Z and so on. Is there any way I can do all different combinations (of X, Y and Z) in a single study? Or will I have to do different combinations in different study?

       

      3. Also, will the "overrided mass value" be used in the simulation?

       

       

      Regards,
