#### Problem with dynamic analysis

Hey,
I have a big problem, which I am already despairing. To briefly describe my problem. I'm working on a project where I have to look after the construction, what deformations and stresses occur on the components. There are heavy components connected to a beam. These beams are attached to a large wheel. When this wheel rotates, the heavy components are strongly influenced (due to gravity). In addition, centrifugal forces arise due to the rotational speed and rotational acceleration.
So my question is if it is possible to make an analysis where I can see the change in the influences of the forces. So far a harmonic as well as dynamic analysis was not possible (to my knowledge ).

Thanks a lot !!!

It would help to have a coordinate triad so we can refer to directions. I will assume that the disk is in the X-Y plane and rotates about the Z axis.

Create 3 Static Structural analyses.

The first analysis computes the effect of the angular velocity. Assign a Rotational Velocity using the maximum angular velocity the disk will achieve. (Omega)

The second analysis has a Standard Earth Gravity in the X axis (1G-X)

The third analysis has a Standard Earth Gravity in the Y axis (1G-Y)

Use a Solution Combination where alpha is the angle of rotation to add sine(alpha)*1G-X and cosine(alpha)*1G-Y and add the Omega solution. You might want to create 24 rows of Solution combinations to capture the effect of gravity in 15 degree increments.
