Can I apply a centrifugal force to my part?
This article uses Simulation and all the simulations in nTop have two requirements: FE Mesh and Boundary Conditions (BCs). Follow the instructions in the links below to prepare your model for simulation.
Boundary Conditions (BCs)
Yes, you can apply a centrifugal force using the Rotational Force (beta) block. This block allows you to apply an acceleration load (centrifugal force) caused by a constant rotational velocity. To use it, choose the region where the load is applied, set an axis, and define the rate in Hz. Check out the attached example to see this block used in a static analysis.
