DP8 – Motion Load Transfer Analysis

Structural Validation of Mounting Lugs

(Design Problem courtesy of In-CAD Services Ltd)

Key Features Introduced in this Design Problem

Key features
1 Analysis of different assembly Level of Detail options
2 Motion loads


This design problem is a follow-on from Design Problem 3 and will look at the effective use of Dynamic Simulation to validate the structural integrity of the mounting lugs. The force will be exported from the simulation study and will be directly used in the Stress Analysis environment, removing the need to apply loads and restraint.
