Nonlinear dynamic contact

For this particular example, we will take a look at how we can setup a Nonlinear Dynamic Simulation inside SOLIDWORKS.

We are going to use this feature to simulate collision between two bodies and see the stresses generated due to this action. Before we run the simulation, we need to create the two bodies inside SOLIDWORKS.

Next we setup the assembly of the parts as shown. Do constrain the motion of the block in one axis while fixing the stopper. Continue reading
