How to define constraints for hinge while doing FEA analysis ?
I tried using pin and planar but it did not work.
This is for mechanica analysis for door hinge
Analysis gives localised high stresses at corner oppposite to applied load (which is not true in real world because applied load is not that great to cause stresses beyond yield point)
so that means model constraints are not correct
i have used displacement constraint for hinge flat face (using surface region) and pin constraint for hinge pin
planar constraint for hinge edge
Model looks okay in animation but stresses are localized in corner (rather along the entire edge)
constraints to simulate hinge
Free to translate in Y direction
and free to rotate in z direction
let me know if you have any suggestions
