PD1371CA - When FEA Isn't Enough: How Dynamics and Creo Simulate Work Together

This presentation will discuss why static FEA, such as Creo Simulate, is not always sufficient for validating the structural behavior of assemblies and how to overcome these challenges with additional tools. Multi-body dynamics software such as Creo Mechanism or other specialized tools are able to solve for large scale motion and reaction forces that are typically ignored when using ideal boundary conditions, but generally lack the fidelity of a finite element model. By combining the strengths of both tools, a user can efficiently understand whether their design will behave as intended before manufacturing.
