Tutorial - Simulation of Plummer block under torque?

Here is the tutorial.

  1. Step 1:

    Start SolidWorks and open the attached model.

  2. Step 2:

    Under simulation tab choose study advisor>>new study.

  3. Step 3:

    Let's keep the settings to default and select type Statis and click OK.

  4. Step 4:

    Under fixture advisor select fixed geometry.

  5. Step 5:

    Select the inner faces of the body of casting where the bolts will make it fixed.

  6. Step 6:

    Now we can see the green arrows. These arrows indicate that the body is fixed here.

  7. Step 7:

    Under refernce geometry select axis.

  8. Step 8:

    Select the circular face and click OK.

  9. Step 9:

    Under External loads select Torque.

  10. Step 10:

    Select the inner face and axis1 as the direction.

  11. Step 11:

    Enter the torque value of 100 & click OK.

  12. Step 12:

    Now click Run.

  13. Step 13:

    Now we have the analysis result of the plummer block under torque.
