    How to apply radial displacement in SW simulation?

    Yogesh Channaiah

      Hi All,

      I'm trying to do some simulation on a cylindrical part which undergoes a radial displacement while its being assembled. I've tried the advanced fixtures options and by using the reference geometry, selected the the faces undergoing deformation and the axis as reference. Under "translations" option in the "radial" tab I've specified the amount of displacement. but after running the simulation, I got unexpected results and also the deformation is more than what I specified. Then later I gave the "distance from the axis to face after deformation" instead of "amount of displacement". But again the same results, which is very strange.


      I think I'm messed up with the data I'm entering in the "radial translation" tab or I can't figure out where else!!!!!

      Hope you guys will help me to find the right answer.
