StressCheck Tutorial: Modeling a Compression Only Spring Analysis
Abstract: To simulate load transfer to holes, or if a compression-only reaction is desired for a single part, normal springs combined with a Material (or General) Nonlinear analysis may be an efficient workflow:
- Assigning normal spring constraints to select surfaces
- Defining & assigning elastic-plastic material properties to the same surfaces
- Computing a linear & material nonlinear analysis
