Introduction: SolidWorks Simulation - Application of Forces on Angle Bar

Angle bars are frequently used for strengthening purposes.

Shown here are two ways that may be used on the angle bars:

Method 1) weld one of the flanges onto the surface subjected to force

Method 2) weld the edge of the two flanges onto the surface subjected to force

Step 1: Method 1) Weld One of the Flanges Onto the Surface Subjected to Force

This method is good for welding on flat surfaces, or on the edge of two perpendicular plates joint together..

Step 2: Method 2) Weld the Edge of the Two Flanges Onto the Surface Subjected to Force

This method is good for welding on uneven surfaces..

Step 3: Solution Using SolidWorks Simulation

SolidWorks Simulation is used to determine reaction of the angle bar under a load.

Angle bar is rigidly fixed on both ends and the same uniformly distributed load is applied on both setups.

It can be seen that Method 1 will deflect less in the results.
