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 for the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium nonlinear module. It 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 how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion.
Large Displacement Analysis
Incremental Control Techniques
Nonlinear Static Buckling Analysis
Analysis of Elastomers
