Centrifugal Load—Creo Simulation Live
Centrifugal loads are body loads that simulate rigid body rotation for your model. When you define a centrifugal load you specify either the vector components of angular velocity, or the direction vector and magnitude. The resulting body load acts in the direction opposite to the direction of centripetal and tangential velocity.
To Define a Centrifugal Load
1. Click Live Simulation > Centrifugal. The Centrifugal Load dialog box opens.
2. Specify a name for the load, or use the default name.
3. To change the default WCS to a UCS, click Selected in the CSYS area and select a Cartesian coordinate system on the model.
4. Select one the following options to specify the magnitude and direction of the load:
Velocity components—Specify the components of velocity for each coordinate direction X, Y, or Z. The resultant direction and magnitude of the load is determined from the values you specify for each coordinate.
Magnitude and direction—Specify the value of the unit vectors for Direction.Specify the magnitude of velocity in the Mag entry box.
5. Select units of velocity from the drop-down list or accept the default value.
6. Click OK to create and save the load.
