SolidWorks Simulation provides powerful tools that expand the capabilities, so you can
investigate more tests and operating environments on both parts and assemblies to complete your
virtual testing and optimize your validated designs. simulating the real-world response of your design has never been easier.
With the full-featured suite of tools in solidWorks simulation, you can reduce the number of assumptions required in a world that is rarely linear or static.
Click for Product Matrix
Study Conduction, Convection and Radiation heat transfer. Utilize Isotropic, Orthotropic and time-dependant material properties.
Vibration & Buckling
Examine how vibrating or unstable
modes can shorten equipment life & cause unexpected failures. Assess the effects of stiffening under external load on frequency or buckling response.
Isolate the worst-case orientation to support physical testing. Observe the interactions between various parts in an assembly after impact.
Study the effects of Cyclic loading on product life. Check a systemís expected life or accumulated damage after a specified no. of cycles.
Pressure vessel Analysis
Combine various structural & thermal loads as required. Linearize stresses on any cross-section.
Study & optimize assemblies of all size. Evaluate forces & stresses between contacting parts, including friction. Mesh both parts & assemblies with custom meshing diagnostics tools, including mesh transitioning and local mesh controls. Use Trend Tracker and Design Insight Plots to drive optimal changes as you work. Automatically optimize designs for minimum mass or volume as well as buckling and frequency goals.
SolidWorks Simulation Designer
An analysis application for virtual testing of parts and assemblies, shows engineers how their designs will behave as physical objects, testing factors such as material stress and heat conduction. Analysis of Parts and Assemblies, Supports Linear Static, Thermal Stress, Contact analysis in assemblies with friction etc.
SolidWorks Simulation Motion
Powerful, easy to use motion simulation for SolidWorks. SOLIDWORKS SIMULATIONMotion simulates the mechanical operations of motorized assemblies and the physical forces they generate. By determining factors such as power consumption and interference between moving parts, SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION Motion helps you ascertain if your design will fail, when parts will break and whether or not they will cause safety hazards.
Optimize designs with hyperelastic materials such as, rubbers, silicones & other elastomers. Conduct an elasto-plastic analysis to study the onset of yield as well as plastic deformation.
Perform dynamic analyses of parts and assemblies. Simulate time history loading, steady state harmonic input, and random vibration excitations. Study stress, displacement, velocity and acceleration with time as well as RMS and PSD values for stress, displacement, velocity and acceleration.
Utilize simulation to leverage these advanced materials used in an increasing no. of products, from consumer goods to advanced aerospace structures. Use sandwich and graphite or carbon-fiber composites, including honeycomb and cellular foam.
Apply inlet velocities, pressures, mass- or volume-flow rates, and fans. Ifmultiple fluids are involved, you can apply mass or volume fraction. Simulate temperature changes by applying a surface or volume heat source,specifying natural or forced convection, or accounting for solar radiation.Solve flow problems involving non-Newtonian fluids, such as blood and plastic.
