Ladder Frame

Application ID: 117811

This example illustrates how to perform eigenfrequency and static analyses of a ladder frame structure for a light truck. Important modeling strategies are described. For example, how to convert a solid geometry to a shell model, how to make different types of connections, and how to apply a distributed load by specifying its resultant. It is also shown how to model welds, and how to evaluate them with respect to allowable stress levels.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
