Tutorial - Analysis of Circular beam under UDL in SolidWorks?


Here is the tutorial.

  1. Step 1:

    Right plane >> Sketch.

  2. Step 2:

    Draw a circle of 50mm diameter.

  3. Step 3:

    Extrude it by 500mm.

  4. Step 4:

    Right click Material and select alloy steel.

  5. Step 5:

    Now go to Simulation tab and select New study under study advisor.

  6. Step 6:

    Keep the default settings and click OK.

  7. Step 7:

    Click Fixture advisor and Select fixed geometry.

  8. Step 8:

    Select the right back face as the fixed face.

  9. Step 9:

    Make the Top plane visible.

  10. Step 10:

    Select Force under External Loads Advisor.

  11. Step 11:

    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.

  12. Step 12:

    Now our model is prepared for analysis.

  13. Step 13:

    Click Run to start the solver.

  14. Step 14:

    Now we have the stress distribution and the whole study analysis.

  15. Step 15:

    For displacement distribution click Displacement1.
