I want to make a simple FEA on a shaft which is loaded by it’s own weight and some remote force which generate torque. The torque is then counter-balanced with the keyhole’s wall. So I expect the highest load on that wall.
I tried two methods for modeling bearing support:
- Rotating motion
The Fixed constraint is not so good since it doesn’t allow the shaft to rotate the key is not even loaded.
The Rotating motion constraint seems the good one for me but the terms like base point, rotation axis and rotation angle are not fully clear for me. And the results are also quite nonsense.
May you please have a look on it and help me to find out what to do?
Thank you in advance!
