Tutorial: Using simulation/ FEM Analysis in Catia V5
Using simulation in Catia V5
Create a model and apply material and go to generative structural analysis.
Use the clamp option to fix a face of the component.
Select a face to be fixed
Define the value of load
Define the direction of load by using "+" or "-" symbol infront of the value
Click on compute to perform the calculations
Click on preview->ok
After the calculation is complete successfully, check the various stresses.
Clicking on von-misses will display somewhat similar result
You can check deformation
tools->animate to see the animation
tools->generate report to generate a report.
