SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS

How to Automate Bolted Connections in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform!

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is an extensive solution platform with multiple roles and software applications that can be a great compliment to SOLIDWORKS desktop. Among the many great applications on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, are the simulation roles: Structural Performance Engineer (SFO) and Structural Mechanics Engineer (SSU). Both simulation roles contain numerous simulation applications to solve advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) problems. In today’s blog I am going to show some automated meshing techniques on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform that make applying connections very easy! […]

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 […]
