Hey,

 

I try to simulate a large displacement movement and have a problem. I got two simulations and want to evaluate the SPC-Forces, which are completely different, although the model is the same. The constraint is placed in the middle of the green component and connected to it, with rigids (see Figure). In the first simulation, the total displacement of the green component is 350mm (due to constraint) in x-direction. In the second simulation the total displacement is 50mm. When I evaluate the force-displacement plots and compare them, the results are completely different, which makes no sense. For example, in the first model the force at 50mm displacement is 6,7e+05 N. But for the second model, the force at 50mm is only 8,19e+04 N. But they should be totally the same to my opinion.

 

Somebody any hints?

I did a simulation with a displacement of 100m also and compared the graphs in one plot. As you can see, the graph history is almost the same, but with different values. Why is the SPC-Force dependent to the total displacement? Does that make sense?

Hi Elvis,

 

I think the way SPCF is calculated is dependent on stiffness and enforced value and SPCF is directly proportional to both. This is why you are seeing such a change in results,

 

Anyways, I am going to dig a bit deeper into theory to confirm this and I will also check with expert before I come back to you with a proper explanation.

Hi Prakash,

 

ok thanks. I am looking forward to your information.
