SolidWorks Simulation Premium | Advanced dynamics and plastics analysis

By: Hawk Ridge Systems  06-Dec-2011
Keywords: Product Development, Operating Conditions, Stress Analysis

SolidWorks Simulation Premium allows you to perform high-end nonlinear, dynamic and composite material analysis in the easy-to-use SolidWorks Simulation interface. Complex material and structural behavior can be analyzed to simulate and predict performance under dynamic or nonlinear loading conditions.

One of the most comprehensive and sophisticated analysis packages available, SolidWorks Simulation Premium provides a tremendous range of design validation capabilities at a fraction of the cost of most high-end finite element analysis (FEA) programs.

SolidWorks Simulation Premium includes access to the full range of finite-element analysis available for SolidWorks, and allows the user to analyze the complex behavior of plastic and rubber components and other nonlinear components.

It also provides access to dynamic analysis modules, providing a cost-effective alternative to shaker table, vibration, shock, transport, random vibration and seismic testing inside the SolidWorks window

With SolidWorks Simulation Premium, you can:

  • Compare alternative designs easily and quickly so you can choose the optimal design for final production
  • Study interaction between different assembly components
  • Simulate real-world operating conditions to see how your model handles stress, strain and displacement
  • Spend less time on specifics with automated tools that simplify the validation process
  • Interpret results with powerful and intuitive visualization tools
  • Collaborate and share results with everyone involved in the product development process
  • Determine how moving and contacting parts behave within an assembly
  • Perform drop test analysis
  • Optimize your model to meet pre-specified design criteria
  • Determine if your design will fail due to buckling or vibration
  • Reduce the costs and time delays caused by physical prototyping
  • Identify potential design flaws and correct them earlier in the design process
  • Solve extensive thermal simulation problems
  • Perform coupled thermal and structural analysis
  • Determine failure due to fatigue from cyclic loading on your designs
  • Perform nonlinear analysis on plastics, rubbers, polymers, and foam
  • Conduct contact analysis coupled with nonlinear materials
  • Study the performance of your design under dynamic loads
  • See the behavior of composite materials

Solidworks Professional | Solidworks 3D Design software

I have yet to find a VAR that can compete with them in service, knowledge of SolidWorks or any other Dassault application. When hired by Intralase, I changed the company from their existing VAR to Hawk Ridge. I have been working with Hawk Ridge Systems for over 15 years. I have yet to be disappointed when dealing with them. I received my initial SolidWorks training from them. Doug Blackburn CAD Administrator Intralase Corp.
