SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 includes the ability to define a factor of safety (FoS) plot for Nonlinear Static studies. Herein, the factor of safety plot is extended to nonlinear static studies.

Once a SOLIDWORKS Simulation Nonlinear static analysis completes, you can create a factor of safety plot based on a defined failure criterion.

To enable the plot right-click your Nonlinear results and select Define Factor of Safety Plot from the shortcut menu, as shown below:

You can also create a factor of safety plot from results derived from a selected solution step or from the extreme values across all solutions steps, as depicted below:
