Boundary conditions for creep analysis

    • zubair akhtar

      I have a question i was trying to do simulation for creep model for Solder for 6 thermal cycle and it was perfectly working fine. But it takes a lot of time


      I have put these boundary condition

      Fixed support, y fixed , xy fixed and then x fixed.

      And these condtions are perfectly fine for me.


      But i want to run simulation of half model . And I tried to do the same condition but the results are quite different compare to full model BCs.

      Could you please suggest what kind of BCs are ok for running half a model

      You need a plane of symmetry.  Please refer to R2023-R1 Mechanical User's Guide=>Defining Symmetry.
