Error with shell elements I am trying to run a static analysis. The problem is that when I am trying using solid elements then the analysis runs.

I am a graduate student who hasn't worked too much with SolidWorks and am attempting an assembly to perform a FEA. When I used SAP2000, my advising professor wasn't too happy with the graphics despite some semblance of results. With SolidWorks, I have created a nice assembly and fixed all the meshing errors but have a failure in fixtures as the study failed to run.

I'm interested in using excess computer resources to help speed up simulation time. Typically we use one computer at a time, but we have 8 fairly powerful machines that are sitting idle. In particular, I find it desirable when performing mechanical analysis of thin parts with complicated loads and CFD simulations involving complicated flow paths and thin geometry.

I tried to model my connection using connector screws in SW simulation. They connect 2 parts divided by a no penetration contact.

Custom plot colors Can you define custom palettes in the color bar for flow simulation plots?

One of my students is making a simulation of 4-wheeled skate and the results are strange When i see the results of the velocity i see a complete red cutplot and the colorbar is changing

I'm doing an overkill workstation (10000€ budget) and i'm looking for best performance in solidworks, ansys and other simulation programs. I read that solidworks does not benefit from SLI, but i was wondering why in solidworks benchmarks test is written x2 P4000 x3 P4000 or even x4 P4000? How are they connected? No sli Bridge?

I am trying to do a static analysis. What I want to do is to calculate the moment on the top of the transition piece. I have calculated the value of the moment and what I think that I can do for the simulation is to apply the force on the inner edge of the central tube as you can see in the picture below.

Maybe someone knows if there's a way how to optimize sheet metal part thickness. My part looks like in the image. Micheal Johnson SelvarajMay 24, 2018 10:21 AM(in response to Simona Skeryte) Yes, we can optimize sheet metal part thickness.

I created the attached screw joint to better understand the way SW computes connector forces. I put an upward 10000N force applied to the upper face of the upper plate.

Just started full time at a company and the main thing that we do is exterior aluminum canopies for buildings. Basically I look at architectural drawings and then design the canopy in solidworks according to their dimensions. Then we eventually send our designs to an engineer to recommend things like fasteners and other attachment details. I don't know what software they are using to get their load calculations.

Hi! I just finished a simple internal flow simulation with my pipe. And I would like to do a pipe stress analysis due to the flow, therefore I exported the flow simulation result into the FEA study.

I've ordered to modal analyse a pump station which exists in real. I modeled all pipes, flunges, suppurts,... in past couple of months. now i reached the simulation step and as this is my first Big Project I appreciate any kind of tips or notices. until now I did couple of things which i'm going to share for better understanding:

Mesh Error I am trying to do a static analysis in an offshore jacket foundation. The problem is that when I am trying to mesh it the mesh of most of the parts fails.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? I am doing a non-linear axis symetric 2d simplification of a pipe being pressed into the bottom of a hole. Global contacts are no penetration. The pipe has a 45 degree chamfer around the end and this chamfer is mating up with a matched 45 degree counter sink at the bottom of the hole.

I am looking at a steel dart falling onto a piece of glass that's bonded into a plastic housing by 4 spots of glue. I started off by modelling the glass, the glue dots and the dart, making the glue dots built in on the surfaces where they would contact the plastic mount in real life.

Hello, I created a simple pump and impeller. Then I assemble them to do flow simulation. For that, I created another component say'Boss-extrude3'to apply to rotating region and while creating this I unchecked merged option. Also, in component control, I disable this'Boss-extrude3'.Then I went to select rotating region but I am unable to select any part.

Beam Analysis I have a part attached which I want to carry out a simulation on, i've tried fixing it in a few different ways but the it wont run, i'm presuming its to do with how the frame is drawn up as usually works ok for simpler frames , if someone can take a look as I don't often use simulation, thanks
