Setting up a Non-Linear Analysis with SolidWorks Simulation
Jay's next Simulation video reviews setting up a typical Non-Linear analysis using SolidWorks Simulation. In order to perform Non-Linear analysis you need Simulation premium. If your products utilize materials with non-linear behaviors such as plastics or rubbers, or loads that stress materials beyond their yield point you should consider performing Non-Linear studies on them. These studies can answer questions like, "Is my part strong enough?" Is my part over designed and can I remove material?" "Could I be using a different material?"
