SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018: Mesh Refinement for Stress Singularities Hot Spot Diagnostic

Stress Singularity

The Stress Hot Spot Diagnostic Tool introduced in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2017 helps engineers find hot spot regions in their model and possibly look for a potential ‘stress singularity’. In SOLIDWORKS 2018, this process has been enhanced to reduce the manual mesh refinement process in order to…

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 Axial Periodicity

In SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 you can reduce the analysis time when analyzing fluid flow (or conjugate heat transfer) in models consisting of axial periodic

In SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 you can reduce the analysis time when analyzing fluid flow (or conjugate heat transfer) in models consisting of axial periodic features. Using this Axial Periodicity you need to calculate the fluid flow only for a sector instead of the entire…

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 Improved Pin Connector

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 Pin Connector

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 pin connector has been enhanced. Now you can define a pin connector through more than two cylindrical surfaces in one definition. An improved user interface allows the definition of a single pin connector applied to multiple cylindrical faces (maximum ten). For instance, in…
