How to see if a frame can support a load

By George on 14 Oct 13:10 1 answer 404 views 0 comments

I have a holding bin on a frame, I'm using Solid edge ST5, I can get to the simulation point, but what confuses me is if the bin and the product in it weigh 5000kg, I apply the force to the top of the frame holding the bin with the force in a downwards direction, but how much is the Mn that is requested if the weigh is the 5000kg? or should I be using Kpa and what would that be?

    Keep in mind the weight unit is not kg, it should be in Newtons. The stress level of the output will be in kPa.
