Tutorial: Using simulation/ FEM Analysis in Catia V5

Using simulation in Catia V5

  1. Step 1:

    Create a model and apply material and go to generative structural analysis.

  2. Step 2:

    Use the clamp option to fix a face of the component.

  3. Step 3:

    Select a face to be fixed

  4. Step 4:

    Define load

  5. Step 5:

    Define the value of load

  6. Step 6:

    Define the direction of load by using "+" or "-" symbol infront of the value

  7. Step 7:

    Click on compute to perform the calculations

  8. Step 8:

    Click on preview->ok

  9. Step 9:

    After the calculation is complete successfully, check the various stresses.

  10. Step 10:

    Clicking on von-misses will display somewhat similar result

  11. Step 11:

    You can check deformation

  12. Step 12:

    tools->animate to see the animation

  13. Step 13:

    tools->generate report to generate a report.
