SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Nonlinear


PrintThisPage
Length: 2 days; 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Prerequisites: Must have attended the basic SOLIDWORKS Simulation class or have similar experience with SOLIDWORKS and a working knowledge of finite elements and of basic mechanical principles.
Description: This class will raise your SOLIDWORKS Simulation FEA skills to the next level.  It offers hands-on experience on the use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium nonlinear module. The 2-day course provides an overview on a wide range of nonlinear structural/mechanical analysis topics. You will learn how to deal with models that exhibit large displacements and/or yielding, discuss and practice the use of many material models available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and, most importantly, how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion.

Topics covered in this course:

Geometric Nonlinearities

  • Large displacements problems
  • Large strain formulation

Material Nonlinearities

  • Nonlinear elasticity
  • Hyperelasticity (Mooney-Rivlin, Ogden)
  • Plasticity (von Mises, isotropic/kinematic/mixed hardening rules)
  • Temperature dependent material properties
  • Visco‐elasticity and creep

Contact (Boundary) Nonlinearities

  • 3D nonlinear gap/contact analysis (with or without material nonlinearities).

Numerical Procedures

  • Solution control techniques (force, displacement, and Arc-Length controls)
  • Equilibrium Iterations schemes (Newton-Raphson, modified Newton-Raphson)
  • Termination schemes (convergence and divergence criteria)

Special Topics

  • Adaptive automatic stepping algorithm
  • Prescribed non-zero displacements associated with time curves
  • Deformation dependent loading
  • Analysis stabilization techniques

Viewing the Results

  • Deflected shape plots
  • Displacement and stress color filled contour plots
  • Animation of deflected shape, displacement, and stress contour plots
  • X-Y plots for response quantities Isoplanes and sectioning
