Tutorial - Analysis of Circular beam under UDL in SolidWorks?
Here is the tutorial.
Right plane >> Sketch.
Draw a circle of 50mm diameter.
Extrude it by 500mm.
Right click Material and select alloy steel.
Now go to Simulation tab and select New study under study advisor.
Keep the default settings and click OK.
Click Fixture advisor and Select fixed geometry.
Select the right back face as the fixed face.
Make the Top plane visible.
Select Force under External Loads Advisor.
Select the face and the top plane as the selected direction. Under force tab enable Z and input a value of 10000N with reverse direction.
Now our model is prepared for analysis.
Click Run to start the solver.
Now we have the stress distribution and the whole study analysis.
For displacement distribution click Displacement1.
