'FEATURE STAIR TREAD PAN' simulation project by CadManDo


I created a new simulation project called 'FEATURE STAIR TREAD PAN':


More of my public projects can be found here.


Hi Graham (@CadManDo)

Having a look at your project now - so I see the area loading (it seems that you have applied this twice: check boundary 2 and 3)

For the point load in the center of the tread (want to confirm, you mean here right?), and what is the magnitude of this load?

Additionally with a thin structure like this, a second order mesh will improve the accuracy of your results


To apply the point load I split the faces of the stair tread:

and then applied a nodal load at the center intersection.

I’ve run the project here: https://www.simscale.com/projects/AnnaFless/feature_stair_tread_pan/
