SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015: Incremental Nonlinear Simulation Results

nonlinear-solver

In SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015, you can visualize intermediate results during an incremental nonlinear simulation. By getting visual feedback of the results as the simulation progresses, you can make decisions to either stop the simulation and make adjustments to the input, or let ... Read More

SolidWorks Composer – Detect Curves & Align Pivot [VIDEO]

detect-curves

As I was learning to use SolidWorks Composer, one of the tasks I found difficult to master was the transform command. The pivots were aligned in a way that did not follow the assembly direction. I had to use the "detect curves" option and at times there was no curve to detect. ... Read More

Nonlinear Analysis – Stress / Strain Curves for Material Models

Non-linear Analysis Featured

Depending on the settings, nonlinear analysis may require the input of stress / strain curves. When that is the case, the curve should be entered using the correct definition/values for stress and strain. As a matter of fact, several definitions of stress exist: true stress, ... Read More
