Simulation functions and results

Hello!

I am currently using Technology preview with inventor prof 2009.

Will there be any temperature models in the 2010 simulation ?
I want to simulate a cast-in product

And regarding the results, Is it just von Mises stress, and the principal stresses that could be seen.
I want the information regarding the Tresca stress as well, is that available ?

And one more thing, in ASTP can I click on any surface and see the result at a certain point? Sometimes it is a little bit tricky reading the results from the colorbar

Thanks

Daniel,

Q: Will there be any temperature models in the 2010 simulation ?
A: Not in R2010, it will come in future releases.

Q: And regarding the results, Is it just von Mises stress, and the principal stresses that could be seen.
I want the information regarding the Tresca stress as well, is that available ?
A: No Tresca stress, but you can easily calculate it based on principal stresses or stress components at any point.

Q: And one more thing, in ASTP can I click on any surface and see the result at a certain point? Sometimes it is a little bit tricky reading the results from the colorbar.
A: In both ASTP and Inventor Simulation R2010, you can probe result values at any point of a selected surface.

Hello,

I'm testing 2010 simulation and I want to know if it's possible :
- to see von Mises stress inside the thickness between part faces ? like seeing virtual ''cutting'' ?
- to change intermediate values of the result scale (between max and min) ?

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Fabien,

WRT to your questions:

Q: to see von Mises stress inside the thickness between part faces ? like seeing virtual ''cutting'' ?
A: No. It would be nice to have but usually interesting values are on the surface, not inside.

Q: - to change intermediate values of the result scale (between max and min) ?
A: Yes, you can set max and min in the Color bar, the results are shown in the desired range. Besides, you can use "Probe" to display values at a particular position.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for your answers.

I have one more question :
Q: to see von Mises stress inside the thickness between part faces ? like seeing virtual ''cutting'' ?
A: No. It would be nice to have but usually interesting values are on the surface, not inside.

So Q : I study a tube with several internal reinforcements. How I can see the stress on the reinforcements inside the tube ?

Fabien,

"So Q : I study a tube with several internal reinforcements. How I can see the stress on the reinforcements inside the tube ?"

You can follow:

1] Perform analysis, get results you want.
2] While the results are shown, from File > Save Copy As, save as dwf file format.
3] now a dwf file should be open in Autodesk Design Review [ADR]
4] in ADR, you can cut the part/assembly with a slicing phane, which should allow you to show the results of your interest inside the tube. Note it shows surface results, not solid internal results. Again, the max/min value usually should be in the surface, in your case, the surface of the reinforcements inside the tube.

Hope it helps,

I like the DWF workflow for displaying results. I am using 2009 and am looking forward to 2010.

I would like some enhancements in it though. I would like load and constraint information in the dwf. I would also like to be able to chose any of the defined results (Von Mises stress, Deflection, etc) as part of the dwf output.

Currently, I have to make a new dwf for each result that I want and then manually combine them. I also have to manually add text boxes to show loads and constraints.

Hi swalton,

 

  I've logged wishlist item 1227317 for adding
this functionality to a future release of Inventor Simulation.

 

  We appreciate your feedback!

 

Best regards, -Hugh

Many thanks for these answers. It will help me to validate the using of Simulation 2010.

To be complete, could you answer the last question :
- Do the solid internal results will be avaliaible in future releases of Inventor Simulation ?

Regards.

Fabien,

Thanks for validating the using of Simulation 2010. To anwser your question, yes, displaying solid internal results, among other features, will be made available in future releases.

Enjoy feature-enriched powerful Simulation 2010.
