One of the customer require, to know the rise in the temperature due to friction. How best this can be simulated.
not supported in SWX Sim. I don't think there is a work around, not one that comes to minds at any rate........It is supported in ABAQUS and likely other codes.
If you know the friction coefficient, and you know the speed, you can compute the power, which you can plug into SolidWorks Simulation as a boundary condition. These are the same pieces of information I'd assume you'd need to do this in Abaqus. If you don't know the friction coefficient, you can do some easy experiments to get it. You should probably do them anyway, rather than relying on publish coefficients.
Also you could even include non-linear effects by making the friction factor, thus heat power, a function of temperature in SW SIm.
sounds like a great enhancement
Ok. Will try this way, the parts in contacts have interference fit, I think this can not be simulated in Thermal analysis, need to remove the interference & then work??
Interfering components will not mesh.
are you talking about a shrink fit or actually interfering parts?
Its shrink fit.
shrink fit is ok for interferences but you could have a challenging thermal stress setup
a temperature vs power would be a lot easier to navigate but in the end, i think that is what you are trying to determine so may not be an option
Retrieving data ...
