May 16, 2016 · Again we follow the same steps to find the reaction force. With the rib, the force required for 20mm of displacement is 24.3kgf, considerably higher than without the rib. We hope you found this tip to be a powerful technique; one that can be used to optimize a very wide range of designs.
Is there a force reaction in the out of plane directions? This would indicate some instability of the elastomer section. Perform a hand calculation using “MathCAD” of compression force reaction (see below) and compare it to the appropriate ANSYS results. Expect to be within 20-25% of ANSYS.
Standing, walking, running, and jumping on a force plate Rod Cross Physics Department, University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales 2006, Australia ~Received 4 June 1998; accepted 18 August 1998! Details are given of an inexpensive force plate designed to measure ground reaction forces involved in human movement.
