SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2021 Interaction Improvements and Stabilization

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Stabilization

Simulation studies require proper geometry setup to ensure that the solver can run.  The most common source of studies that fail to solve is from missing bonded or contact definitions.  There are techniques, as shown in our troubleshooting unstable models blog article, to help determine…

Do you need to create a Local Bonded Contact Set for SOLIDWORKS Simulation Shell Bodies?

Local Bonded Contact Set

Let’s assume you have a SOLIDWORKS simulation study and you have decided to represent your model using shell elements to optimize your resources. The two bodies that are modeled with shell elements are going to be rigidly bonded to each other in your actual model….
