SS-T: 4000 Static Structural Analysis

Perform a static structural analysis of a pullup bar assembly.

SimSolid performs meshless structural analysis that works on full featured parts and assemblies, is tolerant of geometric imperfections, and runs in seconds to minutes. In this tutorial, you will do the following:
  • Learn how SimSolid works
  • Create a comparison for SimSolid's workflow and results with those obtained with traditional FEA.
Model Description
There are two different pullup bar models used in this tutorial. Each model has 33 parts. You will perform two static structural analyses for the following:
  • 2 load cases of 750N (168 lbf) total load on different handle locations
  • 2 different design configurations with varying support brackets
The following model files are needed for this tutorial:
  • Pullup bar V1.x_t
  • Pullup bar V2.x_t
