SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional Training

CATalyst Premium

Credits: 3
Classroom: 2 sessions, 7 hour
Virtual: 4 sessions 3-1/2 hours each

Class #: C201

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional takes the user beyond the linear static stress analysis offered in the SOLIDWORKS Simulation course. Users will learn how to set up additional study types including: steady state and transient heat transfer analysis, modal analysis, stability based on buckling, parametric and topological optimization, and drop test impact studies. This course is also intended to make the user proficient in handling the powerful Simulation post-processor and demonstrates the seamless integration of Simulation and SOLIDWORKS.

The SOLIDWORKS Simulation prerequisite course, answers the question, is the part strong enough? SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional helps answer even more questions: "Is the design susceptible to resonance?", "Can mass be reduced without compromising strength?", "Will the structure buckle before it yields?", "How many load cycles can the design endures before it fails?". Utilizing case studies to illustrate these processes, the user will learn the necessary commands, options, and menus in the context of completing a design rather than focusing on individual features and functions. During this instructor-led course, students will learn:

  • Setup of Frequency studies for parts and assemblies and the impact that loading makes to modal frequencies.
  • Buckling analysis to check for structure stability.
  • Load Case management to model multiple scenarios and the use of sub-modeling to refine the solution for parts found in large assemblies.
  • How to optimize for weight/strength ratio with Topology or dimensional changes.
  • Thermal analysis with convection, conduction, and radiation.
  • Analyze components with cyclic loading using Fatigue studies.
  • Use of Drop Test to ensure design holds up to impact loading.
  • A pressure vessel case study to extract data that fulfills ASME standards. Completion of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional will prepare the user to efficiently analyze their designs using the multiple study types: steady state and transient heat transfer analysis, modal analysis, stability based on buckling, parametric and topological optimization, and drop test impact studies.

Training Testimonials

Great class and instructor. When I get back to work the transition to SOLIDWORKS will be easy. Would recommend this class to anyone starting up.

Thomas Huntsinger

Roger was very easy to get along with and very helpful. Never expressed impatience. The material flowed smoothly and naturally.

Benjamin Wheeldon

The course was just what I needed to help my conversion from Solid Edge.
