# Teaching Solved Model Files and Examples

These model files are available to use by faculty for teaching physics, analysis, statics and dynamics concepts for free, please use the form below to request for the model files (**available** **for Faculty only**)

The below list of model files are available to teach Statics concepts

We can simulate simple test coupon pulls (still in the linear range) and using the results demonstrate the relationship between longitudinal and transverse strain.

A plate of defined dimension has a constant temperature on each side of the place resulting on a temperature differential. Student is to calculate the flux through the plate as a result of the differential and then model and simulate in SimSolid to compare the results.

Students will use their knowledge to do a MOJ analysis on a simple truss structure and calculate an FBD which will allow them to determine equivalent forces on the joints. A static model will then be used to show that we can do the same thing in FEA.

A simple cantilever beam is a staple of engineering education. Students are provided with formulae to compute the deformation of a cantilevered beam with a simple force on one end. The student will calculate the deformation and compare it to the static model.

The below list of model files are available to teach Dynamics concepts

This example Will demonstrate the concept of a body rotating where the student will calculate the angular velocity of a moving body and compare it to a model which will simulate the same motion

Students will use their understanding of a pendulum motion to calculate the angular velocity of the pendulum at a particular location and use that information calculate the tension on the pendulum arm due to the force of gravity and the angular velocity.

This will demonstrate that the rotational velocity of a spinning body will change as its mass distribution changes. Students will calculate the new rotational velocity and compare that to the motion model.

Students will calculate the behavior of an offset mass attached to two springs. This can also be simulated in a 1D solver. The results can then be compared to the same model in IM.

This example will illustrate two springs that are being pulled, and the maximum displacement needs to be determined. Maximum displacement can be computed using a conceptual formula and further compared with the motion model.

A projectile is fired vertically upward from the ground. Students have to calculate the maximum height reached by the projectile and then model and simulate in Inspire to compare the results.

The coefficient of friction between two surfaces can be determined using a friction ramp, as it is considered an ideal way to illustrate how a frictional force can affect the speed of the moving object. Students have to calculate the coefficient of friction, which is provided by the tangent of the angle between two surfaces, and further hand calculations can be compared with the simulation results.

This example demonstrates a sliding brick on a smooth roof, where the students will use their kinematics knowledge to calculate the distance and speed of the brick at particular locations and compare it with the simulation model, which will imitate the same motion.
