for my studies I have to create a simualtion model of a thermoplastic gear using ANSYS. The viscoelastic behaviour is described with the help of prony series. In the model Im looking only at one tooth which is loaded by a sinus force. Now Id like to calculate the storage energy, loss energy and damping for each cycle, but I have no idea how to do it best.
Do you have any suggestions how to proceed in ANSYS???
I would be very happy if anyone could give me some advice at this point. Thanks for your help.
