SOLIDWORKS Simulation Beam Joint Reactions [VIDEO]

Article by Irfan Zardadkhan, PhD, CSWE updated December 5, 2012


My tech tip of the day is the new functionality for obtaining SOLIDWORKS Simulation Beam Joint beam joint reactions. Now it is possible to list reaction forces and reaction moments at beam joints that have fixed translations or rotations.

After the simulation is completed, right click on Results and choose the List Result Forces. Now you can pick the joints you want to view the reaction forces on. The reaction forces and moments will be displayed in call outs on the screen with a graphical representation on the joint.

Watch the video below to see this feature in action.
