How to apply Loads for 1D linear analisys on Formula Chassis

Recommended Posts

Hello guys!


This is my first time dealing with HyperMesh and Finite Element software, and Im kinda having a hard time using it. I'll be glad if any of you guys can help me out!


Im building a Formula SAE Chassis and I need to check if there're any extra bars and also check if any of them will break and so on.


I already learned how to do meshing on each bar, but now I dont know how to apply loads and start the 1D linear analisys for the beginning.


I also found a Tutorial here but I do not have the samples to start the workshop...


So...after having the chassis imported from solidworks and have all bars meshed, where should I start now?


Thanks a lot!!


PS: Already solved the problem with importing (from another topic).

you should create load collectors first then go to analysis radio bar and select constraints or forces which ever you need to apply (but check that the load collector of that load is selected ).select nodes and apply forces and select the direction then give the magnitude of force.

for constraints you need to constraint the rear suspension points .select nodes and apply constraints.


i would recommend you should first go for free free run analysis in order to check whether your 1d elements are properly connected or not.usually 1d elements are not properly connected.
