This paper explores the changing role of design analysts, the new challenges that they face, and how SIMULIA® Structural Simulation Engineer (SSE) analysis software from Dassault Systèmes can help analysts succeed in meeting these emerging responsibilities.
This paper examines the increasing demands that designers face to deliver more robust designs early in the process and how integrated simulation capabilities can help them drive the design creation process to achieve that goal.
Manufacturers are leveraging simulation-driven product development because it provides a host of business benefits as part of the transition to smart manufacturing. What manufacturers need to secure these advantages and meet emerging business challenges are integrated, easy-to-use, and automated design simulation and analysis tools—tailored to meet the needs of specific functions.
This report presents the accuracy of results given by SOLIDWORKS simulation 2019 using the Guide de validation des progiciels de calcul de structures (Structural Analysis Software Validation Guide) published by AFNOR (Association Française de NORmalisation, French Standardization Association).
Today, automated meshers produce robust, high quality simulation models. Cloud-based solvers yield results in minutes. Easier-to-use interfaces make analysis available to practically anyone. And yet many companies labor to figure out how to incorporate analysis into their development processes.
With the ability to conduct fast topology studies, designers have opportunities to automatically generate the optimal shape for a specific design; to quickly take advantage of new manufacturing techniques; and to ultimately satisfy demands for greater product development automation, innovation, and throughput.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation is an easy-to-use portfolio of structural analysis tools that use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models. The portfolio provides linear, non-linear static and dynamic analysis capabilities.
This article examines the benefits of simulation-driven design and the simulation tools available to SOLIDWORKS users.
