SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS- Import via SOLIDWORKS Connector

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Lately, many of my blogs have talked about the power that SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS adds to the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite. Whether it’s advanced FEA, plastic injection simulation, or fluid dynamics, there is almost certainly a role on the platform that can help any engineer with complex simulations. I haven’t written a lot about the link that exists between the geometry in SOLIDWORKS, and the new 3D Experience environment. So today, I’d like to discuss the first of two methods for […]

Import your SOLIDWORKS Models to SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Structural Performance Engineer and Structural Mechanics Engineer are two of the 3DEXPERIENCE Finite Element Analysis Roles. Both Roles are part of SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS, and offer advanced SIMULIA Solvers, Contacts, and Meshing capabilities. This article has been created to help document the most direct way of importing a SOLIDWORKS model into Structural Performance Engineer, or Structural Mechanics Engineer. Step 1: Open Structural Mechanics Engineer or Structural Performance Engineer Role. Choose Structural Scenario Creation, or Mechanical Scenario Creation App. Note Structural […]

Step By Step, Multiple Sequential Loads in SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium has always been able to apply multiple loads in sequence if the model does not move position. This means cold forming operations generally could not be simulated using multiple dies. With the introduction of SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS now we can. Let us look at the setup for the model and the desired output. In this model we have a metal tube, and a die set (Stations 1 & 2). The intention is to press the tube into […]

Fluid-Structure Interaction- Fluid Cavities and SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In today’s rapidly changing tech world, there is a growing demand for simulation to be performed early and often in the design process. Furthermore, simulations are becoming more complex as the programs that are used can handle coupling multiple types of physics together. One of the most common demands that I experience is the need for Fluid-Structure Interaction, or FSI for short. These types of problems usually involve coupling a fluid dynamics solver with a structural solver. With the power […]

Why SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS? 3D Experience Simulation and SPH Elements

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

There are many reasons businesses have been shifting to the cloud over the last few years; flexible licensing schemes, data backups & security, downsizing internal IT overhead, the list goes on. All sorts of industries are moving in that direction, and design verification and simulation are no exceptions. Cloud based simulation benefits from all the items listed above, and more. Today, I would like to cover a feature that differentiates SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS on the 3D Experience Platform from SOLIDWORKS […]

What Does Effective FEA Look Like in 2021?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

If you’ve been successfully doing FEA for years or decades, you have no doubt developed an effective process for getting the job done.  But imagine you’re a smart, new innovator just starting out today — do you think you’re going to settle on that same old process, proven as it may be?  The reality is: What once took a day now takes an hour. What once required human decision-making doesn’t anymore. What was once cost-prohibitive to use isn’t anymore. These […]

The Global SIMULIA & CATIA Conference Is Coming, and We’re Presenting!

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Join us virtually for the 3DEXPERIENCE Modeling and Simulation Conference, November 17-18!  We’ll be having two fascinating presentations for you to enjoy: Effective Methods for User-Defined Meshing in CST Microwave Studio A key benefit of CST Microwave Studio is the broad selection of high-frequency solvers. This includes two general-purpose base solvers, Time Domain and Frequency Domain, and two special-purpose solvers, Integral and Asymptotic. We will review user-defined meshing methods, best practices, and solver settings that affect mesh quality and solution […]

SIMULIA for Tire Engineering: A Comprehensive Simulation Package

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Dassault Systèmes CATIA and SIMULIA (Abaqus, XFlow, CST Studio Suite, etc.) solutions are widely used in the tire industry to optimize tire performance, reduce costs and develop innovative products. The combination of design, PLM and simulation tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform means these solutions are even more powerful in combination, allowing advanced design and simulation workflows integrated over the entire tire design cycle. This improves communication between design teams, making project data and specifications easily available to all, and allows […]
