Training Course Description

Length: 5 Days

Prerequisites: Knowledge of SOLIDWORKS and basic mechanical engineering concepts is recommended.

This course is designed to make SOLIDWORKS users productive more quickly with the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional analysis package. The 5-day training class provides an in-depth coverage on the basics of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), covering the entire process from meshing to evaluation of results for parts and assemblies. It discusses linear stress analysis covering the entire analysis process from meshing to evaluation of results for parts and assemblies, gap/contact analysis, and best practices. Also covers heat transfer analysis, frequency analysis, fatigue, stability analysis based on linear buckling concepts, and pressure vessel modulus. Examples of parts and assemblies including those with various gap/contact conditions are reviewed.

Who Should Attend: All SOLIDWORKS Simulation users wishing to create better designs in SOLIDWORKS by performing analysis and evaluating the behavior of their parts and assemblies under actual service conditions.
