Of the various types of analysis that COSMOSWorks performs, I found the most interesting one to be the new drop test figure 1especially for an analysis product in this price range. This is especially helpfulwhen designing containers that carry hazardous materials, such as these cosmosworkd. Attachment My problem occurs when defining constraints and loads. Run the study or selected design scenarios. I applied a bearing load to the bearing surfaces and a static load to the wheel surfaces.

Although experienced COSMOSWorks users will find the steps involved in runningdrop tests familiar, the technology behind them is more complex than cosmoswprks looks. Complex nonlinear analysis technology underlies ease of use.

Upfront Drop Tests in COSMOSWorks – Digital Engineering

In illustration, think of a toy airplane crashing 205 first onto the floor. New additive manufacturing systems for volume production with repeatable results. It’s refreshing to review a product that has no pretense of being something “entirely new and.

However, youcan change that angle and, if desired, enter data about any friction the fallingobject would experience when hitting the floor. There is a force from the wheels on the second cylindrical surface green as you move in from the ends of the shaft. There is a bearing surface on the first cylindrical surface blue as you move away from the center of the shaft.

On one hand, this version simplifies several of the analysis processes for newer users.

This is not an add-in Chief Architect has been around for more than 10 years and has earned a solid reputation among its target group.

As for industry use, Solidworks is becoming more widely used than creo because creo is too expensive and is more cumbersome when it comes to doing What is mechanical cad? Real-life problems generally can be solved using either approach, but dependingon the nature of the problem, one method will be faster than the other.


The drop tests discussed here can account for suchmaterial behavior coupled with impact analysis. For how long after impact should one observe or capture the solution? The speed gained through technology and through cosmosdorks of use makes it simple forusers to run drop tests 205 their designs, and adds a welcome dimension to overallupfront simulation. It creates a folder for each study, and study parameters reside in subfolders.

Figures 9 and How do you select the time steps to save from your results? Is there a way to create a restraint in CW that will allow the entire cosmossorks to bend as it would in real life? The time now is Results 1 to 2 of 2. Menus can also be used to accomplish all of this, but the tree is much more visual and intuitiveā€”a good thing for new users. The goal is to model the old, unreliable shaft as well as the new design which does not break and find a reliable stress plot which indicates the location of the break.

Engineering Analysis with COSMOSWorks ()

Mesh the model divide it into small elements for analysis. On the other hand, several analysis capabilities are expanded, which should appeal to more experienced users. It employs the finite element method for performing FEA finite element analysis. Can you upload a pic of the results and a pic of the failure for comparison?

COSMOSWorks 2005

Users can define material properties, loads, and restraints in any order, but they all must be defined before running a study.

Japazo, So, you have a radial load on the green surfaces and cosmlsworks bearing constraint on the blue? Because each simulation can have tens ofthousands of time steps, it makes sense only to save the important ones ratherthan wasting computer resources on the entire series see Figure 7.


Entire site Article Author Event News. Specify Drop Height and Floor Orientation. Or, what happensto the structure of a storage tank if the crane cosmowsorks it in place should dropit? All exclusively from Cadalyst! The default angle of the surface can be ocsmosworks surface materials can be specified. Solid Works vs Creo Most users won’t outgrow its capabilities because the more they use it and become better acquainted with its settings and how to interpret its results, the more they discover what it can do.

If you choose a height study, you thendefine whether to measure from the centroid or center of the object or fromthe bottom of the object.

It simulates the working conditions of SolidWorks models and predicts their physical behavior. Regardless of the study type, all analyses follow the same basic steps: COSMOSWorks drop test simulations also support plasticity, so that design engineerscan determine such permanent deformations as dents after impact.

Analysis results can cosmodworks viewed as contour plots of stress, displacement, and strains for all locations on a model, or at preselected locations such as vertices and reference points.

When the object 205 study hits the floor, a stress wave originates from thepoint of impact and travels through the length of the object and then travelsback, an effect similar to the ripples when a stone hits water.

This article examines what a design engineerneeds to do to perform such a test, what kind of results he or she will obtain,and explores the cosmosorks behind such simulations. Discrete element method simulation software cosmoworks particle collision analysis, spring and damper motion, fiber modeling Solidworks is definitely much better than creo.

Define as many as what-if design scenarios. Users can, however, evaluate the results to assess the possibility of those events occurring.
