Thermal Structural Analysis

Thermal structural analysis is the application of the finite element method to calculate the temperature distribution within a solid structure, which is due to the thermal inputs (heat loads), outputs (heat loss), and thermal barriers (thermal contact resistance) in your design. Thermal structural analysis solves the conjugate heat transfer problem with the simulation calculation of thermal conduction, convection, and radiation.

Vibration Analysis

SOLIDWORKS Simulation provides detailed vibration data through frequency analysis and dynamic analysis to ensure product performance and safety. Vibration analysis is an important consideration when an applied load is not constant (static), inducing unstable modes of vibration (resonance) which result in a shortened service life and cause unexpected failures.

Structural Analysis

Structural simulation covers a wide range of FEA problems – from the performance of a part under a constant load to the stress analysis of a moving assembly under dynamic loading, all of which can be determined using SOLIDWORKS Simulation tools.

Structural Optimization

time varying stresses and deformations due to an initial impact of the product with a rigid or flexible planar surface (the floor) are calculated. As the product deforms, secondary internal and external impacts are also calculated, locating critical weaknesses or failure points, as well as stresses and displacements. Drop test analysis using SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables you to visualize the elastic stress wave propagating through the system so that the correct assembly methods are used.

Frequency Analysis

Quickly and efficiently investigate the natural frequencies of a design—with and without loads and boundary conditions – with easy-to-use SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Ensure that the natural modes of vibration are away from environmental forcing frequencies, indicating that the design will meet the required service life.
