Mass Properties in Simulation

You can calculate mass properties of all or selected bodies included in a Simulation study.

Right-click the top icon in the Simulation study tree, and click Mass properties.

The Mass Properties tool considers:
  • Solid, beam, and sheet metal bodies with their material definitions assigned in Simulation.
  • Thicknesses assigned to shell and surface bodies.
  • Composite shells with assigned materials.
  • Remote masses.
  • Masses added with bolt and pin connectors.

These properties are calculated: mass, volume, surface area, center of mass, and principal moments of inertia (taken at the center of mass).
