SOLIDWORKS Plastics brings easy-to-use injection molding simulation directly to the designers of plastic parts and injection molds, as well as advanced CAE analysis. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects on parts and molds. You can quickly evaluate manufacturability while you design, to eliminate costly mold rework, improve part quality, and accelerate time to market. A Results Adviser provides troubleshooting steps and practical design advice to help diagnose and avoid potential problems. […]

Composite Analysis in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

SOLIDWORKS Simulation helps analyze symmetrical and unsymmetrical composite layups, as well as composite sandwiches. Each layer can be defined by a unique set of material properties and orientation, giving the designer maximum control to find the optimum layup and material for maximum product performance. The failure criterion for composite materials is very different than for metals. Composite materials do not yield; rather, the fibers delaminate and fracture. SOLIDWORKS Simulation reports the FoS against failure according to the Tsai-Wu and Tsai-Hill […]

Can you feel the vibrations as you walk up and down the staircase? SOLIDWORKS Simulation Dynamic Analysis can!

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

I came across an interesting application last week. While walking up and down a metal staircase we often do not pay attention to vibration effects. Maybe the engineer working on the project figured this out for us. If that was not the case, I would feel extremely unsecure walking up and down the staircase. Imagine all the vibrations running through you …I think I would turn around and exit the building.   So my colleague modeled a staircase to test […]

SOLIDWORKS Simulation webcast: Fatigue Analysis

Fatigue analysis examines how repeated or random load cycles can cause structural failure. This seminar explores how SOLIDWORKS Simulation takes two complementary approaches to design analysis using  (a) Design for Strength: Traditionally in failure analysis, designers consider the ultimate strength of components, but in-service loads are rarely static in nature as there is usually a cyclical variation.  (b) Design for Life : Utilize this approach to predict and address causes of failure. Click here to register for this event.We will […]

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation: Tracer Studies

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Tracers allow you to study the flow of admixture (tracer) in the existing carrier fluid under assumption that the presence of admixture has a negligible influence on the carrier fluid flow. Such assumption is justified if the concentration (mass fraction) of the admixture is relatively low. This example shows how to obtain a flow field and how to define a tracer source to simulate the pollutant dispersion. Here we consider the street canyon, a road and its flanking buildings shown […]

Dynamic Tests: What, When and Why?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In linear static analysis, the loads are applied gradually and slowly until they reach their full magnitude. After reaching their full magnitude, the loads remain constant (time-invariant). The accelerations and velocities of the excited system are negligible, therefore, no inertial and damping forces are considered in the formulation: When loads applied vary with time, inertial and damping effects cannot be ignored, static studies do not give accurate results. Linear dynamic studies use natural frequencies and mode shapes to evaluate the […]

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Approach

Heat Transfer problems often crop up when designing consumer products, such as baking ovens, outdoor grills. So how does a deisgn engineer build the best most efficient design without breaking costly prototypes?  Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a great method to replicate the environment in a computer simulation. However, most CFD programs are complex, difficult to use, especially for designers who have not had a great deal of advanced education in physics of fluid flows. SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation offers intelligent, […]
