The non-structural mass distribution associated with the part can be defined using linear density, surface mass density, and point masses. Individual parts consisting of solid, surface and wireframe geometries can be analyzed under a variety of loading conditions. It also allows the vibration characteristics of parts to be assessed by calculating the natural frequencies and the associated mode shapes.

The boundary conditions can only be applied at the part level. The latter is particularly useful to determine if the loading would cause yielding of the material and permanent deformation of the part.

CATIA V5 Generative Structural Analysis

The Clamp conditions mean that the displacements in all three directions are zero. This unique capability allows collaboration and provides access to advanced PLM practices such as concurrent engineering and change management. In FEA, loads refer to forces. These specifications are then automatically incorporated into the underlying finite element model, meaning that users do not have to work directly with the finite element model.


Product Key Customer Benefits.

These are areas where the geometry changes rapidly such as bends, fillets, and keyways. This means that the boundary conditions cannot be applied to nodes and elements. The deformation image can be very deceiving because one could have the impression that the wrench actually displaces to that extent.

The user can choose the number of modes and frequencies to be calculated and can animate the deformations of the mode genetative.

Any of the principal stresses or the von Mises stress anlysis be plotted. This makes it intuitive and natural for designers to use GPS to ensure that their parts meet their design generztive. Are there any parameters to adjust to have those areas visualized? The explanation of these elements is: Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. Generative Part Structural Analysis GPS allows designers to understand how their designs behave and to accurately calculate the displacements and stresses within the part under a variety of loading conditions.

CATIA V5 Generative Structural Analysis (FEA) Training

CATIA V5 Analysis users can store, manage, and version all the data associated with their product’s simulation and share the information within the extended enterprise. Controlled accuracy Normally, GPS automatically creates a finite element mesh and adapts the mesh to ensure that the results are accurate with little or no user input.

The maximum stress is 4. Interactive interpretation of results GPS provides a number of ways for a designer to understand the behavior of their design. The Loads toolbar is used for this purpose. Analyses can be performed on volume parts, surface parts and wireframe geometries.


First steps in CATIA General Structural Analysis – beginner tutorial

Allows designers to more accurately size parts and understand the mechanical behavior of their designs. When you want to save Part and Analyze you should use Save management. As soon as you enter the Generative Structural Analysis workbench, the part is automatically hidden. The color and the length of arrows represent the size of the displacement. Download the Course Overview: The analysis specifications, such as loads and restraints, are associative with the design allowing users to perform analyses quickly and easily.

We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. GPS is ideal for designers who are not experts in finite element analysis. Provides rapid and accurate assessment of stress, displacement, and vibration characteristics.

However, more experienced users can control the meshing algorithm, allowing the trade-off between computational time and the quality of the results to be optimized.

The size is represented with green and the sag with blue.

My Distributed force is N. Keep in mind that the displacements are scaled considerably so that one can stguctural the deformed shape. I have some more points regarding the mesh size.
