Analysis settings of Transient Structural for Pulley and Belt Fatigue

      Hello,


      I am attempting to study the fatigue of a belt on a simple V-belt pulley belt assembly (2 pulleys and 1 belt, Ratio 2)), though I am having some trouble with it. One problem that I know of is in the analysis settings. I am trying to simulate the rotation for a couple turns taking timestamps at every 1s or 0.5s, but I am not sure why this is not working. However, when the analysis settings are defined properly (if I only define it for 1s), the assembly does not seem to rotate even though the rotational velocity of the pulley is set. Greatly much appreciated if someone could help.


      Thanks in advance!


      Thomas

      Correction: Ratio 2 to 3, not sure why it it inserted a smiley face
