  • Sep 28,2019

In this blog post, we have highlighted the top five features in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

Keep reading to learn how SOLIDWORKS 2020 can validate design more quickly and confidently with these top new features.

Accelerated Simulation Calculations

Benefits: Validate designs more quickly while still capturing accurate results for critical components.

Combine linear elements for faster solution and quadratic elements for higher accuracy in the same simulation study.

Simulation Evaluator

Benefits: Be confident that you have the correct simulation setup and results.

Check for common errors in simulation, such as result location, material, and mesh volume.

Distributed Coupling for Pins and Bolts

Benefits: Achieve a more realistic representation of a connector’s behavior.

Allow faces attached to Pin and Bolt connectors to deform.

Thermal Loads for Beams

Benefits: Save a substantial amount of time and computer resources by using beams instead of shells and solids.

Import temperatures from thermal analysis on models with beams as load to perform stress analysis.

Free-Body Forces for Nonlinear Studies

Benefits: Help users quickly obtain results such as Reaction Forces.

Now you can calculate free-body forces for contact, external loads, restraints, and more in nonlinear studies.
