Select Volume Region for Max Prin Strain Measure in Creo Parametric Simulate 2.0?

Select Volume Region for Max Prin Strain Measure in Creo Parametric Simulate 2.0?

Hi,

Please confirm that it's not possible to select a Volume Region in a part for a Simulate measure of Max Prin Strain while in Creo Parametric Simulate 2.0 (m120) ?

Trying to use a volume region for a feasibility study where a strain measure tied to a volume region.

This selection works in Creo Simulate 3.0 but appears not to be available in Simulate 2.0

Thanks

Don Anderson

Don,

I cannot in 2.0 M100

I can in 3.0 M060

Looks like a Creo 2 limitation.

Charles,

The only way I found that I could do it was to first assign the volume region to a layer and then select the layer for the measure.

Don,

Nice one.

Perhaps you should mark yourself as correct and get the star for tenacity?

Re: Select Volume Region for Max Prin Strain Measure in Creo Parametric Simulate 2.0?

Hi Charles,

It appears that selection by layer fails to work. The measure fails to report any values during the analysis.

Have you found a way to tie a strain measure to a volume region in Creo 2?

Looking like I will have to bounce back and forth between Creo 2 and Creo 3 for this project.

Thanks,

Don

That's intriguing.

I managed in 2.0m100 using your layer method. See below.

I should have chosen a model that I could hand calc. I have no idea whether the measure is a sensible value.

Model attached if you want a look.

Re: Select Volume Region for Max Prin Strain Measure in Creo Parametric Simulate 2.0?

Hi Charles,

I will need to look into this further. My analysis involves using a non-linear analysis with a non-linear material.

Changing yours to non-linear and it still works so there must me something else going on with my model.

I will investigate further and get back to you on what I find.

Thank you for looking at this so quickly!

No problem,

A welcome distraction from a particularly troublesome study.
