Choosing the right digital tools is becoming a critical aspect of business strategy for today’s companies. When those tools are the ones you entrust with creating your company’s new products, the lifeblood of product development organizations, choosing the right ones becomes vitally important. There are so many factors to take into consideration when considering software vendors to partner with; an important one is the financial strength of that company.

“Garbage in, gospel out.” A slightly different take on the old adage, this is many people’s perspective on analysis results. But us engineers know better, right? Simulation results are generally only as good as the inputs to the problem.

In the first part, we went over some SOLIDWORKS Simulation shell basics – check out the post here in case you missed it. This time, we dive a bit deeper into the relevant data that accompanies shells in Simulation. Every shell has two sides, which represent the virtual faces separated by the defined shell thickness. There is a top side and a bottom side.

Let’s talk about shells in SOLIDWORKS Simulation. As a general rule, it’s good to consider using them if thin geometry is present. Yet we often see people stubbornly sticking with solid bodies, probably because there is less initial setup required. But when dealing with very thin parts, you might find yourself stretching both the resources of your system as well as your patience.

I think it’s safe to assume that most FEA users have at some point experienced a sudden urge to violently shake their computer. Fantasies of the gratifying impact between a clenched fist and a (temporarily useless) keyboard would not be uncommon among this group either. The reason behind these manic feelings? A study is taking forever to solve – as in, it’s been solving for 10 minutes now even though you expected it to be done 5 minutes ago.

When studying shrink fits and press fits, we have a couple of options in SolidWorks Simulation; I would like to explore a couple of them in this post. If we just care about the end result, we can use the “shrink fit” contact sets. This technique is available in linear static as well as non-linear studies.
