Key Features

  • Concurrently introduces SolidWorks Simulation and Finite Element Analysis
  • Covers a wide variety Finite Element Analysis problems
  • Uses hands on exercises that build on one another throughout the book

In Detail

Engineering Analysis with SolidWorks Simulation 2010 goes beyond the standard software manual because its unique approach concurrently introduces you to the SolidWorks Simulation 2010 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.

The following FEA functionality of SolidWorks Simulation 2010 is covered:

  • Linear static analysis of parts and assemblies
  • Contact stress analysis
  • Frequency (modal) analysis
  • Buckling analysis
  • Thermal analysis
  • Drop test analysis
  • Nonlinear analysis
  • Dynamic analysis
  • h and p adaptive solution methods
