SolidWorks Simulation Validation Library

Article by Irfan Zardadkhan, PhD, CSWE updated December 10, 2012


I see a number of people trying to create simple simulation studies and then comparing the results to hand calculations of well known problems. Although this is a good practice to gain confidence in the results obtained by SolidWorks, at times it is tedious and time consuming process. SolidWorks already contains an extensive library of simulation validation problems. It contains both verification problems and NAFEMS Benchmarks. The verification problems compare results of SolidWorks Simulation studies to known analytical solutions while the NAFEMS benchmark problems demonstrate the accuracy of SolidWorks Simulation software by comparing results to other software.

The Validation Library can be found under the SolidWorks Simulation help menu.
