Observe stress analysis of a part using SimulationXpress to determine the deformation of the part under the influence of a load (force or pressure). Understand the assumptions and limitations of SimulationXpress. Observe stress analysis being performed on a part.
Based on analyses result, optimize factor of safety, maximum stress or maximum displacement value to an acceptable value. Vary a dimension within the range to try to meet the requirement. Make the design leaner or reduce material cost if it meets or exceeds the factor of safety. Achieve factor of safety through optimizing design. Use built-in automation capability to optimize a model. Run simulation.
Adjust the mesh density to adjust accuracy of a simulation. Run a simulation. Use the SimulationXpress wizard to view results such as the stress, displacement, deformation, and factor of safety of the simulation. Generate and save an eDrawings file or word document both of which display the results of the simulation. Adjust a mesh in a simulation. Run a simulation. Interpret the results of a simulation. Generate an eDrawing file or Microsoft Word document with the results.
Use SimulationXpress to analyze deformation of parts by applying fixtures and loads and defining materials. Vary load and/or pressure and customize materials. Learn to start and run SimulationXpress to analyze a single body part. Get comfortable working with items on design tree. Understand that pressure and/or load can be applied only to faces uniformly and constantly. Understand that custom materials properties must accurately represent part materials.
