Simulation problem with results
9 months ago

I use Solidworks premium 2017. When i use simulation , i applied 1000N force to a solid body ( AISI 1020) and displacement occurred, and change force to 1N and run again but resul don't change. whats problem

Re: Simulation problem with results

Hi, the results are different- your images show stress (not displacement) and the plot is exaggerated (see deformation scale in upper right corner).



So the result in one image shows values e+006 ( x 10^6) and the other shows e+003 (x 10^3)

See this webpage to interpret scientific notation of numbers


Scientific notation - Wikipedia


but basically one result is 1000 times bigger than the other as your load is 1000 times bigger- so mathematically the results are correct.

Thanks , I am new to solidworks . one more question . what deformation scale is it good to be correct design

The deformation scale is simply visual and has no bearing on the design. It exaggerates the true results to make them easier to visualise and you get a clearer view of what's going on. so in the example above the model looks 8614.35 times bigger than it truely is in real life.

and to add to Iain's comment, this cannot be changed in Simulation Xpress.
