Tutorial by Sudhir Gill
Small

Here is the tutorial.

  1. Step 1:

    Applications >> Mechanica.

  2. Step 2:

    Click OK.

  3. Step 3:

    Properties >> Materials.

  4. Step 4:

    Select steel.mtl and click >>>.

  5. Step 5:

    Now steel is added to materials in model.

  6. Step 6:

    Now we have to assign the material to the model. Since we have one part therefore only one material can be assigned. Properties >> Material Assignment.

  7. Step 7:

    Select the part and click OK.

  8. Step 8:

    Now a yellow symbol will appear which will indicate that the material is assigned.

  9. Step 9:

    Insert >> Displacement Constraint.

  10. Step 10:

    Select all holes while holding down CTRL key and click OK.

  11. Step 11:

    Now all the holes are fixed.

  12. Step 12:

    Click Insert >> Force/Moment load to apply load.

  13. Step 13:

    Select the top surface of the bracket and in Z direction input 1000N which ~101Kilograms. Click OK.

  14. Step 14:

    Now the force is applied and shown in Yellow colour.

  15. Step 15:

    Click Analysis >> Mechanica Analyses/Studies.

  16. Step 16:

    Click File >> New static.

  17. Step 17:

    Input name Bracket and click OK.

  18. Step 18:

    Click Start run.

  19. Step 19:

    Click Yes.

  20. Step 20:

    Now the study is completed. Click Close.

  21. Step 21:

    Click Analysis >> Results.

  22. Step 22:

    Click Insert a new definition icon.

  23. Step 23:

    Select bracket and click Open.

  24. Step 24:

    Keep the default settings and click OK and show.

  25. Step 25:

    Now the Stress plot is shown.

  26. Step 26:

    Click Insert >> Result window.

  27. Step 27:

    Select Bracket and click open.

  28. Step 28:

    Change stress to displacement.

  29. Step 29:

    Goto display options tab.

  30. Step 30:

    Check deformed, show loads & show constraints. Click OK and show.

  31. Step 31:

    Now we have the displacement plot in the same window.

  32. Step 32:

    Click Insert >> Result window.

  33. Step 33:

    Select bracket file and click open.

  34. Step 34:

    Change stress to strain.

  35. Step 35:

    Under display option tab check deformed and click OK and show.

  36. Step 36:

    The strain plot is also added to same window.

  37. Step 37:

    We have successfully completed the studies of Bracket in Creo Elements/Pro aka Pro/Engineer Wildfire.
