Dear Solidworks User
Can someone tell me how to convert drop test simulation into dynamic analysis. I would appreciate if you could share a sample model along with setup.
Thanks & Regards
I do not believe you can convert it. You need to setup a nonlinear dynamic analysis manually.
why wouldn't you use drop test? it is purpose built for that particular analysis.
I would like to do sequential drop test. In Solidworks Simulation professional we can't do the sequential drop test analysis, that is the reason i would like convert drop test analysis into dynamic analysis.
If the material that you are using is a linear material then I think your best bet might be to use a linear dynamic modal time history analysis. You will have to convert acceleration due to gravity into a shock pulse type input. You can then add the sequential effect by adding multiple pulses. If you have the dynamic analysis manual with you there is an example where they run a shock test. That will take you through the procedure.
see your other post, its not really easy or feasible to do a sequential dynamic analysis in solidworks simulation or any simulation tool
atif's suggestion is a good one if you're ok with teh assumptions of linear dynamic analysis, i believe i recommended it in your other post. (which i would link here in case someone finds this one before the other one)
A few months ago I was trying to do something similar (instead of it being a sequential drop it was a sequential bump test) but I was facing a lot of challenges. Refer to this thread. This may help you hopefully.
However depending on the number of sequences this could take you a long time.
