Tutorial - Using SimulationXpress in SolidWorks for analyzing a rod?
Here is the Tutorial.
Start SolidWorks in Part mode.
Right plane>>Sketch and make a circle of dia 20mm at origin.
Extrude it by 200mm.
Select the face of the rod on right plane as the fixture.
Click Next and the screen shows for force.
Now select the Selected direction option and select the right face of the rod.
Now Select the Top Plane and Enter Force value of 1000N i.e. 1KN and check the reverse direction.
Click OK and Click Choose material and select alloy steel and then Apply, OK.
Click Next and then run Simulation.
Now Select the Show Von-mises Stress for stress distribution.
