Workshop 3-3

Workshop # 3 (cont.)

1. This is a continuation of the workshop #2 2. In this example,we will add 2 additional loading conditions: 3. SUBCASE 20 = thermal loading a. initial temperature = 70 degrees b. loading temperature = 100 degrees 4. SUBCASE 30 = Gravity loading Apply a 1-g(386.0886 in/sec2) in the negative Y-direction

Workshop 3-4

## Suggested Exercise Steps:

1.

2. 3. 4.

Copy previous PATRAN workshop db file:w2.db to another name called w3.db Open the PATRAN database and bring in the w3.db There is already a loadcase called default from workshop 2.

Workshop 3-5

## Step 1. Load Case: Create /Load Case Name: thermal load

Create a new load case: thermal load. a. Type in thermal load for the Loadcase name. b. Click on the Assign/Prioritize Load/BCs button to bring up the menu on the far right. c. Click on the boundary conditions from the top left corner d. Select clamp, dof456, and rightside. e. Click OK to return to the main material menu. f. Click Apply.

Workshop 3-6

## Step 2. Loads/BCs: Create/ Temperature /Nodal

Create the temperature load of 100 degree on all grids on the model: a. Create / Temperature/ Nodal. b. Input name: temp_load_100 c. Click on the Input Data. d. Enter 100 for the Temperature field. e. Click OK. f. Click on Select Application Region. g. Select FEM as the geometry filter.. h. Select Node 1:7 (all the nodes) for the Application Region. i. Click Add. j. Click OK. k. Click Apply.

## Step 3. Load Case: Create /Load Case Name: gravity load

Create a new load case: gravity load. a. Type in thermal load for the Loadcase name. b. Click on the Assign/Prioritize Load/BCs button to bring up the menu on the far right. c. Click on the boundary conditions from the top left corner d. Select clamp, dof456, and rightside. e. Click OK to return to the main material menu. f. Click Apply.

Workshop 3-9

## Step 4. Loads/BCs: Create/ Inertial Load /Element Uniform

Create gravity load a. Create/Inertial Load/Element Uniform b. Input name: gravity_load c. Click on the Input Data. d. Enter <0,-386.08859,0> for the Trans Accel field. e. By default gravity load apply on all elements of the model, and therefore you do not need to Select Application Region f. Click OK. g. Click Apply.
