How to Estimate Weld Size using SOLIDWORKS Simulation

There are two types of edge welds in SOLIDWORKS simulation: Fillet Weld and Groove Weld. Each weld type can be single-sided or double-sided. Fillet weld is a triangular weld that joints two metal parts at a right angle. Whereas, groove weld is applied in a preformed opening or groove. Edge weld results are calculated for all mesh…

50% of product failure is due to Mechanical Fatigue! How can you predict & avoid it?

Fatigue Analysis

Market data indicates that more than 50% of product failure is due to fatigue, which occurs in many different mechanical components such as turbines and other rotating equipment operating under intense, repeated cyclical loads. The primary tool for both understanding and being able to predict and avoid fatigue has proven to be finite element fatigue…

Saving Costs with Virtual Prototyping

Virtual prototyping

Leveraging the combined powers of 3D solid modeling and design analysis software, engineers can now test a design on the computer instead of using prototype-test iterations for design. CAD models have become virtual prototypes, and design analysis has supplanted physical testing, enabling faster, less costly, and more optimized product development. In addition, computer-based design analysis allows…

SOLIDWORKS Design Analysis is NOT just for Experts anymore

Design Analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation

SOLIDWORKS design analysis provides the greatest benefits when implemented very early in the design cycle because that’s when it is easiest and most cost-effective to make design changes. When analysis is performed in conjunction with solid modeling, design engineers can leverage analysis results to fix, improve, or optimize designs. For many years, design analysis was the…

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Cleaning Utility

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Cleaning Utility

One of the lesser known tools that gets installed along with SOLIDWORKS software is the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Cleaning Utility. This utility tool can be used to permanently delete any simulation data, including simulation setup and results information, from any SOLIDWORKS part or assembly file. There are a few scenarios that this tool can be useful. For example,…
