SOLIDWORKS Simulation Dynamics

Instructor Led Analysis Training Course

This course is targeted for the users who would like to become productive in analyzing structures subjected to various types of dynamic loading. The material covered includes the time dependent analysis(force loads as well as motion shock loading examples), harmonic analysis and random vibration analysis (MILS-STD-810F example is included).

Who should attend: Designed for users who would like to become productive fast, the advanced course offers hands-on experience on the use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Dynamics modules. The two-day course provides an overview on a wide range of dynamic analysis topics.
