Load transfer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have ran a simulation of an assemble but the forces exerted on the model don't seem to tranfer on to other components. The components are connected through spotwelds. I have attached a picture that might explain the problem better. In the picture I have applied SPC BCs at the door hinge and latch. On the outer panel I then applied a high force along the nodes on the center line of the door. As you can see from the picture the forces on the outer panel don't transfer on to the likes of the impact beam. 

 

Could anyone advise me on what I should do to fix the problem?

 

Thanks

Hi @Kieran

 

Check if there is any problem with connections.

 

Simple way is Go to Mask panel>> Elements>> Select one element>> select by attached and click mask. If there is any issue with connections, disconnected elements will be retained. 

 

You can run a simple modal analysis to check if there are any rigid modes which confirms issues with modelling if there are any...
