SOLIDWORKS Training Class Descriptions

Class #: C102

This course helps students understand static analysis from elementary level. Students analyze CAD designs using existing SOLIDWORKS part models. Such a structural analysis allows the determination of effects such as deformations, strains, and stresses which are caused by applied structural loads such as force, pressure and gravity. These results can then be studied using visualization tools within the FEA environment to view and to fully identify implications of the analysis.

Class Details

  • Pre processing : defining the finite element model and environmental factors to be applied to it

  • set up boundary conditions
  • use/create material libraries
  • understand mesh types/uses
  • Analysis solver (solution of finite element model)
  • Advantages/uses of different solvers
  • Post-processing of results
  • using visualization tools
