question regarding modelling kinetic/physical bending, stretching motion, fatigue, lifetime analysis, etc. For example: Say I have a piece of plastic and it is affixed at one point and at another I have a single force vector pushing on it. Furthermore, perhaps there are a few holes inter-spaced throughout the material. Can I
- Model the supposed kinetic behavior of the object, given its material, thickness etc?
- Can I do a fatigue analysis of it’s behavior over time? For example after 1,000 inputs, will the material start to crack? Lose some its elasticity? Etc…
- Can I do the aforementioned modelling in a complex assembly?
I know Fusion 360 can do some of this, especially anaylsis of where the most stress will be, is there other ways of doing this? Another program perhaps? A grasshopper script?
Attached is a napkin sketch of what I am trying to do. Thanks!
