About the Book

Book description

Harness the power of SOLIDWORKS Simulation for design, assembly, and performance analysis of components

Key Features

  • Understand the finite element simulation concepts with the help of case studies and detailed explanations
  • Discover the features of various SOLIDWORKS element types
  • Perform structural analysis with isotropic and composite material properties under a variety of loading conditions

Book Description

SOLIDWORKS is a dominant computer-aided design (CAD) software for the 3D modeling, designing, and analysis of components. This book helps you get to grips with SOLIDWORKS Simulation, which is a remarkable and integral part of SOLIDWORKS predominantly deployed for advanced product performance assessment and virtual prototyping.

With this book, you'll take a hands-on approach to learning SOLIDWORKS Simulation with the help of step-by-step guidelines on various aspects of the simulation workflow. You'll begin by learning about the requirements for effective simulation of parts and components, along with the idealization of physical components and their representation with finite element models. As you progress through the book, you'll find exercises at the end of each chapter, and you'll be able to download the geometry models used in all the chapters from GitHub. Finally, you’ll discover how to set up finite element simulations for the static analysis of components under various types of loads, and with different types of materials, from simple isotropic to composite, and different boundary conditions.

By the end of this SOLIDWORKS 2022 book, you'll be able to conduct basic and advanced static analyses with SOLIDWORKS Simulation and have practical knowledge of how to best use the family of elements in the SOLIDWORKS Simulation library.

What you will learn

  • Run static simulations with truss, beam, shell, and solid element types
  • Demonstrate static simulations with mixed elements
  • Analyze components with point loads, torsional loads, transverse distributed loads, surface pressure loads, and centrifugal speed
  • Explore the analysis of components with isotropic and composite materials
  • Analyze members under thermo-mechanical and cyclic loads
  • Discover how to minimize simulation errors and perform convergence analysis
  • Acquire practical knowledge of plane elements to reduce computational overhead

Who this book is for

This book is for engineers and analysts working in the field of aerospace, mechanical, civil, and mechatronics engineering who are looking to explore the simulation capabilities of SOLIDWORKS. Basic knowledge of modeling in SOLIDWORKS or any CAD software is assumed.
