Length: 4 days
Prerequisites: Must have attended the basic SolidWorks Simulation class, or must have an experience with SolidWorks + working basic knowledge of finite elements and of basic mechanical principles. The knowledge of basic principles in Vibrations is strongly recommended, but not required.
Description: The best value for what you get! This 4-day class, created for SolidWorks Simulation Premium users, will raise FEA skills to the next level! The first part of the course will teach you the basic and advanced topics in non-linear stress analysis. You will learn how to deal with models that exhibit large displacements and/or yielding, discuss and practice the use of many material models available in SolidWorks Simuation Premium and, most importantly, how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion. The second part of the course will expose you to various advanced topics in Dynamics. The material covered includes the time dependent analysis, harmonic analysis and random vibrations. (Note, this course is a combination of the SolidWorks Simulation Premium: Nonlinear and SolidWorks Simulation Premium: Dynamics courses).
Who Should Attend: Designed for users who would like to become productive fast, the advanced course offers hands-on experience on the use of SolidWorks Simulation Premium nonlinear and SolidWorks Simulation Premium Dynamics modules. The four-day course provides an overview on a wide range of nonlinear structural/mechanical and dynamic analysis topics.
The topics covered in this course are:
1) Nonlinear Analysis (2 Days)
Contact (Boundary) Nonlinearities
Viewing the Results
2) Dynamics (2 Days)
