Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

Please guide me how can I run a real life simulation of hydraulic cylinder on solid Edge. I want to know the specific constraints that i want to add to the assembly.

axial align the rod the the cylinder

mate with range piston face to end of cylinder or proximity switch face

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

I cant be able to attach the assembly file. 

 

as its giving me an error " The contents of the attachment doesnt match its file type."

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

to upload your assy you need to zip the assembly and all of its parts into a single folder.

(use revision manager to assist in this process..)

 

by way of example see this short video and see if it helps: http://screencast.com/t/Dqga4h0fa

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

This much I've already done. I need to run a simulation by applying a pressure on the piston face. I've attached the zip folder if you can please see.

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

what type of simulation are you trying to run?

 

what inputs to achive what outputs?

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

Just like real-time example. I apply pressure on the piston face , and
wants to calculate the time the piston rod take to travel its full length
against 500 N force. And also the FEA of piston rod.

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

So, Solid Edge native will not provide this sort of information.

 

You can use FEMAP to do the FEA and Dynamic Designer to the kinematics study.

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

My prior experiance tells me that you need more input for this.

The stroke(time) is more related to your flowrate, port sizes, accumulators in circuit, etc...  than the pressure... ??? 

 

Maybe an example or "story" of the application would help us understand better.

 

either way... as mentioned in the other post.  SE native can not calculate this for you...

Re: Simulation of Hydraulic Cylinder

I agree with you on this. Stroke will depend on the flowrate, but I'm
assuming that 200 psi is being accumulated immediately.

Have you seen the rough image that I've attached in my previous reply. That
is the top view of the hydraulic pipe gripper ( or you can say it a clamp).
you can see two hydraulic cylinders, and their piston rod are attached with
the jaws. In the centre there will be a pipe (working piece), and those
jaws will grip that pipe. This hydraulic pipe gripper / clamp will be a
part of hot induction pipe bending machine, and that part will hold the
pipe tight from one.

I hope I can make you see some picture.
