in this week's Project Spotlight we will have a look at a static roller bearing analysis by @BenLewis.
"I wanted to see how the rollers carry a radial load as they move around the race. To achieve this the rollers don't actually roll, they are incremented in small steps over time."
Type of analysis: Static Analysis Advanced
Nonlinear Analysis: True
3D elements: 293,239
Contact slave nodes: 2184
Run time: 147 min
Machine: 8 core
Processing time: 19 core hours
Memory: 7.3 GB
