How to do load analysis on leaf spring in Solidworks

By PHIL RIVAL on 05 Feb 00:16 1 answer 1864 views 0 comments

I have a leaf spring that I want to design and determine if the camber and overall geometry I use is sufficient. I have to use four single springs set around a 300lb piece. the springs will be used to offset elements to keep the 300lb piece in place as it rises and lowers.

    Hi ,you want to analyse your leaf spring.
    Go to the simulation express workspace and follow the following steps
    >Just give fixture to your leaf spring means fix the required geometry of the part
    >After fixing apply the desired load from load option and click next
    >Define material which should be applied to the spring
    >Now you can define mesh formation by applying material change setting
    > Now after applying mesh and force calculate it and it will take a mean while
    >After calculation u would have three optiond
    c.Stress analysis
    Chosing any one will give u the result and u can run the simulation to see actual variations and and u can apply redesign process

    Gud luck
