Displacement load

In WF4 Mechanica, is there a method to insert a displacement instead of a
load force of PSI? I know a surface on a beam has to move .065", but I
don't know the force required to make it move that far. I want to know the
stress when the section has moved .065".

Hi Kelly,

You should be able to use a constraint.

When you set a constraint up (correctly a "displacement constraint"),
the default is to constrain the selected geometry to zero displacement;
but there's also an option to enforce a specified displacement. This
works for any of the usual degrees of freedom - there's a box to the
right of each DOF where you enter the displacement value.

HTH,
Jonathan

Re: Displacement load

If I want to measure the force on the dispacement surface, how to calculate in Creo Simulate
