This tutorial shows you how to set up a gravity analysis with the User Process utility. The setup for the example model includes:

Positioning the blank with reference to the die.
Assigning the appropriate material and section properties to the tool and blank.

A setup file containing the blank and die mesh provides the starting point.


1.Copy the file, gravity.hf, into your working directory.

Note: The model files for this tutorial are located in the file in the subdirectory \hf\Incremental\. See Accessing Model Files.

2.From the File menu, select Open.
3.Browse to the file, gravity.hf, and then click Open.

The model on your screen should look something like this:


4.Near the top of the tree, right-click Process Type, and then select Gravity.
5.Under Blanks > blank, right-click Material, select database > steel > CDRQ, and then click Select.
6.Click Thickness:1, click the value, 1, and enter the blank thickness 1.25.
7.Under Tools > Die, select Position, right-click and select Below.
8.At the top of the tree, right-click Process: grav_implicit, and then select Autoposition...

Notice that the blank positions itself with respect to the die.

9.Right-click Process: grav_implicit, and then select Run.
10.At the prompt to create input, click Yes.
11.In the dialog that appears, browse to your working folder. For File name, enter a file name, and then click Save.

The RADIOSS implicit solver launches and runs the gravity computation.
