Bring Your Products to Market Faster and with Less Prototyping.

SOLIDWORKS® Simulation is an easy-to-use portfolio of structural analysis tools that use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models. The portfolio provides linear, non-linear static and dynamic analysis capabilities.

•    CAD-embedded structural analysis solutions using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict real-life performance
•    Easy to use, comprehensive capabilities solve everything from a simple linear analysis of single components to complete simulations of full assemblies with contact and non-linearities
•    Understand product performance early in the design process to innovate more and avoid rework

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium
Fatigue Studies
Estimate components fatigue life under high-cycle varying loads where the peak stress is below the material yield stress. Cumulative damage theory is used to predict locations and cycles to failure.
Motion Analysis
Time-based motion analysis is a rigid body kinematic and dynamic motion tool used to calculate velocities, accelerations and movements of an assembly under operational loads. In addition, designers and engineers can determine assembly power requirements together with spring and damper effects. With the motion analysis complete, the component body and connection loads can be included in a linear analysis for a complete structural investigation.
FEA Modelling
SOLIDWORKS Simulation includes solid, shell, and beam modeling using h- and p-adaptive element types with mesh control and failure diagnostics. A customizable material library is included with simulation data: Parallel computing (multi-core) Batch Run Professional and Premium only: 2D Simplification Plane Stress Plane Strain Axisymmetric Sub-modeling Simulation Sub-Modelling: analyze the structural resistance of a sub model from a main assembly Premium only:
Loads And Restraints
- Fixtures to prescribe zero or non-zero displacements - Force, pressure, and remote structural loads - Temperature loading - Import Flow/Thermal Loads - Load Case Manager: evaluate the effects of various load combinations on your model. (Available on Profession and Premium packages only)
Assembly Connectivity
Component contact Bonded contact condition Node-to-node, surface-to-surface contact condition Shrink Fit condition Virtual Wall condition Self-contact Connectors: bolt, spring, pin, elastic support, and bearing Connectors Safety Check Professional and Premium only: Edge Weld Thermal contact resistance condition Insulated condition Edge and spot weld connector
Study results are dependent upon the type of study but are displayed as Contour, Iso-Surface, Surface, and Section plots. Quantity point and line distribution given by the probe tool. The Design Insight plot shows loaded material. FEA results can be compared to test data. Deformed shape results can be animated and the animation saved. Overlay Simulation results onto SOLIDWORKS graphics. Simulation results can be communicated to nonSOLIDWORKS users via eDrawings®, a shareable 3D file format
Help And Support
In-product tutorials, online help, and knowledge base.
Thermal Analysis
Solve steady-state and transient part and assembly thermal problems for temperature, temperature gradient, and heat flux. With the Thermal Analysis completed, you can import temperature loads into a Static Study.
Frequency Studies
Frequency Studies determine a product’s natural modes of vibration which is important for products that experience vibration in their working environment.
Buckling Studies
A possible failure mode for long and slender components is by collapse at a load below material yield stress. The buckling study predicts the components buckling load factor.
Pressure Vessel Studies
Linearized stress, a key for safe pressure design, is calculated in the Pressure Vessel Study.
Topology Studies
Enables you to discover new minimal material design alternatives under linear elastic static loading while still meeting component stress, stiffness and vibrational requirements.
Linear Dynamic Studies
Builds upon the Frequency Study to calculate the stresses due to forcing vibrations and calculating the effects of dynamic loads, impact or shock loading, for linear elastic materials. Study types are: Modal Time History Analysis Harmonic Analysis Random Vibration Analysis Response Spectrum Analysis
Non-Linear Analysis
Non-Linear Analysis lets you analyze complex material behavior, such as post-yield metals, rubbers, and plastics, as well as to account for large deflections and sliding contact-in components.
Fully Compatible With SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD
- Fully embedded in SOLIDWORKS for ease of use and data integrity. - Supports SOLIDWORKS materials and configurations for easy analysis setup. - Same user interface as SOLIDWORKS (toolbars, menus, and context-sensitive right-click menus). SOLIDWORKS users can get up to speed rapidly with SOLIDWORKS Simulation.
Parametric Design Studies
Replace description with: In a design study, the parameters of the SOLIDWORKS models (CAD dimensions) and simulation setup (materials, loadings, and fixtures) can be varied to assess the impact of parameter change on the model and perform a wide-range of “what if” analyses.
Parallel Computing
SOLIDWORKS Simulation includes parallel computing on multiple cores and batch run. Premium: Off-load computing
Communication With Reports And EDrawings
Customizable Simulation report. eDrawings of Simulation results.
Linear Static Analysis
Solves part and assembly structural analysis problems for stress, strain, displacements, and Factors of Safety (FOS). Typical analysis assumes static loading, elastic linear materials, and small displacements. SW SIM Premium: Composite materials are added for to Static studies. Component setup includes ply orientation and sandwich definition. Results include ply failure index as well as stress and deflections.
