SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Dynamics


PrintThisPage
Length: 2 days; 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Prerequisites: Must have attended the basic SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium class, or have similar experience with SOLIDWORKS and working basic knowledge of finite elements, basic mechanical principles and basic principles in Vibrations.
Description: This course is targeted for the users who would like to become productive in analyzing structures subjected to various types of dynamic loading. The material covered includes time- dependent analysis (force loads as well as motion shock loading examples), harmonic analysis and random vibration analysis (MILS-STD-810F example is included), response spectrum analysis, and introduction to nonlinear dynamics simulation.
