Can someone please explain to me the difference between a virtual wall and the advanced fixture where no movement is allowed in the normal direction to a flat plane? I understand that with a virtual wall, you can control the stiffness of a contacting surface, but if you assume that surface is infinitely rigid, what is the difference between the two? Or is their use more dependent on the application of your study?

I was just trying SW simulation, and got the error. Please see the photos for errors. I think I had done all the steps correctly, bcz I'm going through the assignment which is step by step.

We use several workstations that is installed solidworks. Only one of them does not show "SolidWorks Simulation" in TOOLS > the Add-ins, although it is suceeded to install solid works including the simulation on the workstation. I have unistalled whole solidworks and reinstalled several times, but it did not work at all.

I have to simulate a gasket to optimise its parameters such as thickness, length, material, and the clearance between the gasket and the tube it will crush. The goal is to model the number of cycles the gasket can handle and then select the parameters yielding the longest cycle time. Actually, there is a hole drilled inside the gasket so that a nylon-12 tube of 1mm can pass through without any interference.

I am doing the sample exam to prepare for the CSWP-S exam. This question ask for the damage percentage at 20mm from the fixed face. The correct answer is 95%, what I got from using probe tool is 68.8%. Can someone view my simulation and identify the error, thanks.

currently I'm studying the mixing of two fuids in a T-junction that is in the order of magnitude of the micron. As a result the characteristic Reynolds number associated with these flows is very small, so I'm working in the laminar regime. The geometry I'm working is the following:

Hello all! I am trying to run a flow simulation over an aircraft wing, however I only have 4Gig of RAM available on my unit, is there a way to accomplish this without me upgrading my RAM? maybe - use a coarse mesh.

Simple example-shaft, hand calculation Hello, i am new with static simulations so sorry for this basic question- i made very simple model of shaft and applied force on one area. I wanted to compare results by hand and by software.

I am working on analyzing the stresses inside and around a connecting rod small end. I am trying to verify my results and the different ways to apply a force to the small end. Currently I am running a static analysis with fixing the big end with a split line, and am applying a total force of 17000N (tension) to the small end bearing surface. I have attached three different scenarios with vastly different results.

I am working on an SAE frame and am trying to create a mesh but it is sending errors because of the bends in some of the tubes being too small. The exact error that comes up is that the body (the curve) is too small to be considered a body. The slenderness ratio of the body is less that 10. These arcs have to be this small to comply to my manufacturing rules but I haven't figured out how to create the mesh.

video codecs Solidworks gets the job done by being able to export uncompressed avi. If you are doing anything serious, you will export uncompressed avi and then import it into a different editing program where you can do things like compress, add sound, and have transition effects.

Maybe a dumb question (because I think I already know the answer), but is it possible to activate Simulation Premium from within SW somehow w/o having to exit the program, change the SNL license order and then restart SW? For example, I'm using SW Premium, turn on the Sim add-in, get Sim Standard functionality, and then realize that I need to export the deformed result as a part. This is a Sim Premium function, so I'd like to be able to just check out the Sim Premium license w/o exiting and

Simulation problem with results I use Solidworks premium 2017. When i use simulation , i applied 1000N force to a solid body ( AISI 1020) and displacement occurred, and change force to 1N and run again but resul don't change. whats problem

I am building a Model of a crankshaft drive and I want to trigger sertain events in respect to the crankshaft angle. I fuigured out that I can add a sensor in form of a measurement, between the surfaces of the crankshaft and the bearings, wich gives me the crankshaft angle. I can then add an alert, when the angle reaches a specific value.

All my tooltips of solidworks 2015 aren't displaying. All answers show a problem with an update KB3072630 which I seem not to have on my pc and yeah the show tooltips is checked. Brian, even if it doesn't appear you have the update, i would still follow the reinstall suggestions and create the registry key as suggested on this page.

please who knows how to do acceleration - basic excitations ? This screen capture is from ANSYS, not from SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Maybe you'll be more successful if you ask this question on an ANSYS forum?

I'm using 2016 simulation professional and running static mixed mesh analyses. I'd like to use section clipping to take a look at the internal stresses on some of the component but option doesn't seem to be working or even available. If I stress plot activated and right click on it, there isn't a section clipping option. If I go to the simulation tool bar and look under plot tools, there's no section clipping option available.
