SOLIDWORKS SimulationSOLIDWORKS Simulation provides an easy-to-use portfolio of analysis tools for predicting a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually subjecting designs to real-world conditions to improve product quality while reducing prototype and testing costs. Efficiently evaluate performance, improve quality, and boost product innovation by setting up real-world environments to test your product designs before manufacture. Test against a broad range of parameters during the design process, such as durability, static and dynamic response, motion of assembly, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and plastics injection molding.
- Linear Stress Analysis
- Finite Element Analysis
- Nonlinear Analysis
- Thermal Structural Analysis
- Frequency Analysis
- Metal Fatigue
Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Simulation?Simulation is an easy-to-use portfolio of structural analysis tools that use the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method 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.
Which SOLIDWORKS Simulation package is right for you?
An intuitive virtual testing environment for static linear, time-based motion, and high-cycle fatigue simulation, Simulation Standard delivers a concurrent engineering approach, helping you understand whether your product will perform properly and how long it will last—during the design phase.
SW Simulation Professional enables you to optimize your design, determine product mechanical resistance, product durability, topology, natural frequencies, and test heat transfer and buckling instabilities. It can also perform sequential multi-physics simulations.
Simulation Premium lets you efficiently evaluate your designs for nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium includes three advanced studies: Non-Linear Static, Non-Linear Dynamic, and Linear Dynamics.
