Simulation of sheet metal assembly with localized loading.

Hi All,

I am trying to simulate a static loading on a sheet metal surafce. The load is localised on a square area of the surface and the surface is supported by 3 supports as the picture below shows.

 I am familiar with surface split for sheet metal part but not assemblies. any idea how to approach this problem.?

 thank you

Is this for use with Simulation Express?

No... this is for the full simulation licence.

just for clarification i am using Solid Edge 6ST

Abdel,

maybe have a look at the Help Activity:

"Apply a mixed mesh to an assembly". 

Or consult with your local reseller/support.

 

This was my quick test in ST7.

Maybe I am missing something, but why don't you just go into the sheetmetal part and split the surface?  Then you have some geometry in the assembly to apply the load to.

Hi,

 

Yes, you can do it!

 

The important step is that sketch has to lie on the mid-plane!

 

Here is a video about steps. This video is divided two parts, in the first I'm using simulation geometry and in the second I'm using part to FEA model.
