    FEA on front bike fork

    Samuel White

      Hi all new to the forum.

       

      I am computing an FEA analysis on a front bike fork and it i require a test that exerts 198 NM of tourque for 12,000 complete cycles with a frequency of no more than 25  Hz.

       

      Now i have given this a go with the Time Modal linear dynamic study however i am using my university computers and it takes a good 3-4 hours to compute and is currently sitting at a point where the solver has finished but the solid works simulation window is stating that "The study is being solved currently". I will update if it completes.

       

      Am i using the correct tool?

      Any way to speed this process up? (I have coarsened the mesh, obviously cant do much about the computing power)

       

      Thanks all!
