problem with the rotational velocity

    • andro.sidhom

      Dear all
      i am trying to simulate friction stir spot welding process,,, i applied a displacement and rotational velocity to the cylindrical body, but i discovered that the body does not rotate by any way,
      i tried rotational velocity---remote displacement --- and cylindrical or revolute joints but it didnt work

      any help

      Rotational velocity will give you the structural effects of applying rotational velocity. Remote displacement and applying joint load should work.

      For friction stir welding please see if the following link helps you:
