SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional


Professional pack of easy-to-use structural analysis tools to predict a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models.

SOLIDWORKS - SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional

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. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium lets you efficiently evaluate your designs fir nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium includes three advanced studies: Non-Linear Static, Non-Linear Dynamic, and Linear Dynamics.

    • With motion analysis complete, component body and connection loads can be included in linear analysis for a complete structural investigation.
  • Design Comparison Studies
    • "What if" scenarios based on defined variables (dimensions, mass properties, simulation data).
  • Fatigue Simulation
    • Estimation of high cycle fatigue life of components subjected to multiple varying loads where peak stress is below material yield stress.
    • Cumulative damage theory used to predict locations and cycles to failure.
  • Trend Tracker
    • Detection of trends in results from different iterations of a static study.
