V5 quasi-dynamic FEA


New member
I am trying to make a quasi-dynamic model of a connecting rod. External loads were applied to the both conrod ends. An iso-static restraint was applied to the conrod as well.
I now need to apply angular velocity, angular acceleration and linear acceleration in order to insure that the loads applied form a completely equilibrated set of internal and external loads. The problem is that I can't find b.c.'s for angular velocity and acceleration. I am using Catia V5 R18.

Any help would be greatly apprecited,
