FEA on front bike fork

Question asked by Samuel White on Mar 1, 2015

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!

 

Sam
