SOLIDWORKS Simulation - SOLIDWORKS Simulation Product Tour


Stress analysis in SOLIDWORKS comes in all shapes and sizes – from the SimXpress toolset that comes in every license of SOLIDWORKS to nonlinear and dynamic analysis in our Simulation Premium suite. This presentation takes you, regardless of your analysis experience and skill, from the simplest approximations of problems, to more complex and accurate approaches, explaining the differences, techniques and real-world applications along the way. If you've ever wondered about what stress analysis tool you might need for a given problem, or what approaches are possible, this is the webinar for you.


SOLIDWORKS Simulation - Premium - Dynamics and Nonlinear


If you’re interested in exploring the full range of finite element analysis available for SOLIDWORKS, this eDemo is for you. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium allows the user to analyze the complex behavior of plastic and rubber components, permanently deformed metal, and other nonlinear loading scenarios. It also provides access to dynamic analysis modules, providing a cost-effective alternative to shaker table, vibration, shock, transport, random vibration and seismic testing, all right inside the SOLIDWORKS window.
