I'm a student and I trying to carry out a simple drop test on a basic model that I've made. However I cant get it to work and to be honest I'm not sure what I am doing. Whenever I try to carry out the drop test I get meshing errors. I've attached the file and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Joule Heating Tutorial Is there any tutorial for setting up a Joule heating simulation or does anybody have any tips? We have a need to run a study using it but I am not sure what inputs are required to start such a study.

I got a problem regarding in contact stress between two cylinders(static simulation in solid works). When i run the simulation and looking at the results of contact pressure (see in vector plot), the max stress is not exactly in axial direction. The maximum stress in axial direction is achieved when the mesh size is above 2mm but the results are not matching with the calculations, with fine mesh at contact location can match the calculation but the axial stress is not in center exactly. Any

cylindrical coordinate systems? I've looked at the Solidworks help, and it plainly says that you can define loads and view stresses relative to a local coordinate system

I need some guidance im running a static load test of two parts with four screws. For one screw (bottom left), i keep getting calculated FOS of 3.19 which seems wrong compared to the other three. what is going on? Is their an error in my mating? connections?

I have a wall made of plastic blocks mounted on top of each other, and mounted on top of a rail fixed to the ground. The figure below demonstrates my study. First, my goal is to apply a linear motor on the middle block to see motor force breaks the wall.

Okay, it's likely faster to post here than to open a case with tech support. I created a simulation, then decided I wanted to add some split lines for applying restraints, so I made a "simulation" configuration. How do you change which configuration a simulation is using?

hi,i have created a structure as assembly. now i need to do the modal analysis to determine the natural frequency.for that i used frequency simulation ,and in this i made the top and bottom portion of the structure as fixture connector. but there has some bolt holes to join the sub assemblies to the frame, but the bolt joint is not showing in the connector option of the simulation.all other options like hinge weld etc are there. (during assembly i used coinside and concentric mates for the sub

I'm working a a simulation for a final project and it takes quite a while to run. I am not real familiar with cloud computing or how exactly it works but I have architecture friends that are able to use another company's software to render some of their work. I was wondering if it was possible or if anyone knew of anywhere a Solidworks Simulation could run using resources from somewhere else. My computer only has 4GB of RAM and it will urn the simulation but take 30+ minutes.

I just got a new computer and I noticed there is a new software installed. This software is called "Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology". Apparently, this software is supposed to optimize the cpu core usage, and (for example) direct the more critical work to your best cores.
