Can I apply a centrifugal force to my part?

Question:

Can I apply a centrifugal force to my part?

Answer:

Yes, you can apply a centrifugal force using the Rotational Velocity Load (beta) block. This block gives you the ability 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.
