Hey!

I am trying to perform a structural and transient analysis on a Roller Element Bearing model. I am able to perform simple static analysis but I would like to utilize Hyperworks to simulate the following conditions:

Inner race to be rotating with a constant velocity and a fixed radial load is applied. Outer race is fixed. The balls should also be rotating.

I wish to know how I can give a constant velocity to the inner race of the bearing while also allowing the balls to rotate. What kind of contact constraint should I apply. Right now I  am working with freeze contact only. 

There is one video but in a different solver which does what I have been trying to do. I wish to do it in Hyperworks. Here is the link:



Also please suggest whether optistruct's non linear can be used or whether I should switch over to a different solver module!

Cheers
