In Detail

Engineering Analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 goes beyond the standard software manual. Its unique approach concurrently introduces you to the SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 software and the fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) through hands-on exercises. A number of projects are presented using commonly used parts to illustrate the analysis features of SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Each chapter is designed to build on the skills, experiences and understanding gained from the previous chapters.
