    Fixed geometry in stress analysis of motion

    Jonathan Bruck

      Hi,

       

      In the Stress analysis of motion dialog, you have the option of selecting the object to study and the mesh size. When I try to run the simulation I get an error saying that there are no fixed geometries or loads. The motion simulation works with contact elements and the fixed components from the assembly but I don't know how to pull this across to the stress analysis study.

       

      Happy to provide more info or pics if it will help.

       

      Hoping that there is an easy solution to this.

       

      Thanks

      Jonathan

          i'm not sure if you have access to the training manual but i think it suggests that you run with inertial relief if importing from motion

           

          however be critical of the results

           

          in general I would recommend setting up a static analysis based on what you've learnt from motion with your own loads vs importing or applying real restraints vs inertial relief.

           

          i'm not sure if i understand your comment about " The motion simulation works with contact elements and the fixed components from the assembly but I don't know how to pull this across to the stress analysis study."

           

          Is that a separate study?
