All about Physical Simulation
Tuesday, October 2, 2007
What is Physical Simulation?

Physical Simulation allows us to simulate the effects of motors, springs, and gravity on your assemblies.

Physical Simulation combines simulation elements with SolidWorks tools such as mates and Physical Dynamics to move components around your assembly.

We can use the results from Physical Simulation to automatically set up loads and boundary conditions for each part in an assembly for a COSMOSXpress analysis.

To create a simulation
1. Add simulation elements.
2. Record the simulation.
3. Playback the simulation.

What are the simulation Elements in Solidworks 2007?
1. Linear or Rotary Motors
2. Springs
3. Gravity

Linear or Rotary Motors
  • Linear and rotary motors are simulation elements that move components around an assembly using Physical Simulation.
  • Physical Simulation combines simulation elements with other tools such as mates and Physical Dynamics to move components in a realistic manner within the components degrees of freedom

Springs

  • Linear springs are simulation elements that move components around an assembly using Physical Simulation.
  • Physical Simulation combines simulation elements with other tools such as mates and Physical Dynamics to move components in a realistic manner within the components degrees of freedom.
  • Springs apply a force to a component. A spring with a higher spring constant will move a component faster than a spring with a lower spring constant. Also, a component with a smaller mass will move faster than a component with a larger mass if acted upon by an equal strength spring.
  • Motion due to a spring stops when the spring reaches its free length.
  • Motion due to motors supersedes motion due to springs. If you have a motor moving a component to the left and a spring pulling a component to the right, the component moves to the left.

Gravity

  • Gravity is a simulation element that moves components around an assembly using Physical Simulation.
  • Physical Simulation combines simulation elements with other tools such as mates and Physical Dynamics to move components in a realistic manner within the components degrees of freedom.
