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.
