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.
Description: This class will raise your SolidWorks Simulation FEA skills to the next level! It offers hands-on experience on the use of SolidWorks Simulation Premium nonlinear module. The 2-day course provides an overview on a wide range of nonlinear structural/mechanical analysis topics. 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 Simulation and, most importantly, how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion.
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.
The topics covered in this course are:
Introduction to FEA
FEA using SolidWorks Simulation
