Setting up your simulations is a straight forward process made up of just a handful of steps like defining your materials, loads, and fixtures – capturing the real-world environment as closely as possible. And before you can move on to the most important step of meshing, you need to define your contacts. This is where you define how two components or bodies interact with one another. How you define these contacts, or interactions has implications on the way the geometry is meshed.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2018 introduces a new study type, the Topology Study, which enables designers and engineers to develop innovative minimum mass components. Based upon linear static loads and restraints, the topology study will ‘remove’ elements from the finite element mesh until the target mass or best stiffness-to-weight ratio shape is reached. This iterative process of element removal is limited by the study constraints such as maximum allowable deflection and any manufacturing controls.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation SOLIDWORKS Simulation offers a virtual world to test your designs. We often use the phrase “real world simulation” when we talk about SOLIDWORKS Simulation, but this phrase took on a whole different meaning for me on a recent trip to Peru. When I was visiting the Nazca lines, I had the opportunity to use the software to help address concerns another tourist had about the safety of the observation tower. Check out the video to see what happened

One of the most frustrating parts of the Finite Element Analysis (FEA) world is when a geometry won’t mesh no matter what you do. What’s even more frustrating is when you don’t know what to do about it! Luckily, I’ve found you can use the Geometry Analysis tool to investigate areas of your geometry that may cause your mesher problems. It’s such a helpful tool, I wanted to share it with everyone!

Prior to SOLIDWORKS 2017In previous versions of SOLIDWORKS, changes to models involving beam elements would result in an error when SOLIDWORKS Simulation was re-activated. It would notify the user to edit the beam joints – as seen in the image below. To resolve this error, the user had to open the joints in the simulation and simply recalculate them. This problem resulted in additional mouse clicks for the user while simultaneously slowing down design iterations.
