With powerful and intuitive SOLIDWORKS® Simulation solutions, product engineers can virtually test new ideas, quickly and efficiently evaluate performance, improve quality, and get the knowledge for product innovation.
Virtual simulation software
Manufacturing companies across all industries have made 3D virtual simulation a valuable engineering tool to synthesize and define their physical products.
Sophisticated simulation is no longer just for specialists. It’s the inspiration that fuels innovation. Product engineers can make their technical decisions driven by simulation insights, uncovering significant product and business benefits.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation helps you ask and answer complex and important engineering questions earlier. Allowing you to test your product virtually with real world insights.
Linear Stress Analysis
Calculate stresses and deformations of parts and assemblies due to internal and external loads to validate product performance and safety while you design.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
Use finite element analysis to calculate stresses and displacements of parts and assemblies under internal and external loads.
Predict component fatigue failures by examining repeated or random load cycles.
Calculate temperatures and heat transfer within and between components.
Evaluate mechanical performance through operational movements using rigid body motion analysis.
Examine how vibrating or unstable modes can shorten equipment life to eliminate failures.
Analyze stresses and deformations of geometry under general loading and material conditions.
Identify boundary conditions and ensure that natural modes of vibration are away from the environmental forcing frequencies.
Determine the impact of time varying loads on structural response for your design.
Plastic and Rubber Part Analysis
Optimize material selection for plastic and rubber components, or assemblies containing plastic or rubber parts.
Optimize a design to meet defined strength-to-weight, frequency, or stiffness performance.
Investigate the buckling strength of a design with and without environmental loads to ensure that it meets product requirements for strength, performance, and safety.
