Dear Solidworks User
Please let me know if we can do sequential drop test in solidworks simulation. . If not can you please suggest alternative method to solve this kind of problems.
Thanks & Regards
solidworks drop test in sim pro is a single drop
you could look at time history to run a shock analysis or nonlinear dynamic if you needed more. both of those are in simulation premium
Hi Jared conway
Thanks for your reply.My requirement is I need to add effect of first drop test results( like stress) to the second drop test of the same model in different direction. Please go through the images.
I need to check 12 different setup. I can open the packed assembly at the end of the iterations(In between i can't able to open as per standard ). End of all the iterations i want to know whether any damage has occurred or not. If damage occurred i want to know on which iteration damage are occur.
Kindly help me can we do this kind of iterations are not. If not any other alternative method to solve this kind of problems.
Any Update on this issue, kindly update me as soon as possible.
Drop test is straight forward. Drop from height or impact velocity. That's it.
If there was a software to do what you want, you would use nonlinear dynamic.
But it will be challenging to setup. And I don't know if you are going to get the crumpling and sequencing that you want.
I would recommend starting with all the drop test orientations and then making a good guess about how they act together. This should help with your design.
Are you trying to determine a time history of g-loads, or are you trying to design your system based on specific numerical results from an analysis? If you're trying to do the latter and want very accuracte results, then you'll need a code like LS-DYNA (and even then, this will be extremely difficult to do correctly).
"(and even then, this will be extremely difficult to do correctly)."
and it will take a long time
Is there any way to solve this problem. I Don't have any issue if solver will take more time.
No. I want to check any damage occur or not at the end of the simulation.
I suggest you look at another method then. As I said, this is be extremely difficult to do with a very robust code, let alone SW. I'm also guessing you don't have much (or any) experience with numerical simulations; if this is true then trying to do this type of simulation as your first is going to be a massive undertaking.
