SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 – FEA Solvers


A few years ago I wrote an article regarding Solver Selection for SOLIDWORKS Simulation.  At that time we had two solver choices – FFEPlus and Direct Sparse.  Last year, SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2014 introduced the Large Problem Direct Sparse Solver.  Now with the introduction of SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2015 there are improvements to the FFEPlus solver as well as a new solver, the Intel Direct Sparse Solver. Per the SOLIDWORKS 2015 What’s New documentation, the FFEPlus solver has improvements to connector formulation […]
