When you install SOLIDWORKS Simulation, NAFMES benchmarks are installed by defualt. I would highly recommend everyone to go through atleast a few of them. The goal here is to see how NAFEMS quantifies SOLIDWORKS Simulation results, and if possible to come up with a technique that will be applicable to your specific problem at hand.
Here is an example of how you can use a simple model to come up with your own benchmark.
You can download this model and follow the steps explained in the link.
