Good morning to everyone,
With my model, the target is to simulate a system quite strange: i have a spring that is normally locked that is able to act on a shaft and a lead screw system (so the translation transformed in rotation) and when thi spring is released, must be able to win a load of 500 N.
My target is to try to estimate the force of this spring sufficient to win the 500 N load for a space that should be 6 mm. This load is applied directly on the screw, not on rotating part.
I'm struggling with the solution, i think i'm making some in mistakes: i don't know how to simulate the release of the spring, so like a ramp force, and also how to simulate a load that is linearly decreasing from 500 N up to 10 N in 6 mm.
The problem is that in the leadscrew system i have like output the rotation of the nut, but is not my case because i need the force applied on the screw also after the nut.
In addition, the leadscrew block forces me to have force applied on the nut, and torque applied on the screw. Do you know if it's possible to reverse them?
Thanks for the attention.
