Bike Component Design with Remote Loads in SOLIDWORKS Simulation


Do you perform analyses of assemblies in SOLIDWORKS Simulation that incorporate off-the-shelf components? We can usually exclude such items in the analysis, since they are typically rated for a certain load limit. I love cycling, so I’ll use the design of a bicycle drive system to demonstrate the use of Simulation’s remote load feature. The system consists of a pedal and crank arm on either side of the bike frame’s bottom bracket and one or more chain rings on the […]
