Initial Von Mises stresses on motorcycle frame

Recommended Posts

Dear forum, 

 

I am simulating a motorcycle crash with a rigid wall and I have a problem in the frame. I applied an initial velocity to all the components of model and since the first frame of the simulation there are Von Mises stresses on my frame, before impact. I wasn't able to find the problem. 

I use TYPE7 contacts and rigids to join parts.

Could these stresses being caused from inertia?

 

Thank you in advance

Hi,

 

Can you check if there is any initial penetration in your model?

 

If possible, please share starter and engine .out files.

I think I found the problem. I forgot to assign an initial velocity to the mass (admas) of my engine. Now the initial stresses are gone! Could this be the only problem? 

hi

How can you Assign mass?
