Import Study features in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Hello everyone! In this article, We want to show off another great new feature in SOLIDWORKS Simulation i.e; The ability to import study aspects from part or sub-assembly studies into the parent assembly study, saving you time by not having to define things twice. Before we get started, We want to note that this is […]


Tip to import a data set into a Simulation interface within no time.

When running different types of analysis, we frequently find myself entering blocks of data to define curves of various types. Whether it be a fan curve or a pressure drop curve for a filter, in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, a stress-strain curve for SOLIDWORKS Simulation, or a Power Spectrum Density curve in a random vibration study […]

With SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional, one of the many study types available is Topology Optimization. The Topology study is a nonparametric optimization of parts utilizing specific goals, manufacturing constraints, and all applied loads and fixtures. These studies provide amazing insight into how forces and other loading conditions are most efficiently supported by their fixtures. They can show […]


Nonlinear hyper-elastic Contact analysis

we have a holder assembly that is fixed at the back. The pipe is pushed into the opening of the holder such that it rests on the holder inner face. The holder part is made of a plastic material (Acrylic) and the pipe is made of a rubber-like-material that obeys the Mooney-Rivlin material model. Surface […]

Shell Mesh in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

General solid bodies are automatically meshed using solid tetrahedral elements, which are a great fit in a variety of cases. For geometries that happen to be constant wall thickness, there is another option that can be beneficial: shell mesh. Shell Mesh Uses Shell mesh can and should typically be used for a variety of geometries […]
