SOLIDWORKS Simulation Essentials - Lesson 2 - Restraints (Fixtures)

Tuesday 2nd June 2020 - 10:00AM to 10:30AM

In this lesson you will learn how to support the model in a way that approximates reality. This will show users how to restrain the model and avoid mistakes common to FEA analysis.

Topics Include

  • Conventional Wisdom - Over-restraining the model
  • Hints and Tips using Advanced fixtures
  • Getting clever with restraints
  • Difference between a Pin and a Hinge
  • Bearing restraints

Thursday 18th June 2020 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM

In this lesson you will learn how to apply forces to the model, to fully utilise the loading methods available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

Topics Include

  • Watch out for forces applied per item
  • Remote loads and remote masses
  • How can I make my forces realistic?
  • Pressure in a vessel

Tuesday 30th June 2020 - 10:00AM to 10:30AM

In this lesson you will learn how to fully understand the materials database available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, to improve accuracy by proper material use.

Topics Include

  • How are different materials similar?
  • What about that over stressed part?
  • Shells: Thin Things & Sheet Metal
  • Beams: Long, Skinny, and Constant

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Essentials - Lesson 5 - Understanding SOLIDWORKS Simulation Results

Tuesday 7th July 2020 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM

In this lesson we will show you the tricks of the trade, to bring your results to life. This will mean that you will be able to get more meaning from your results.

Topics Include

  • That is flexing a lot
  • Understanding a Deformation plot
  • Stress plots: Zero in on what you need to see
  • Different kinds of stresses.
  • But what is the stress right at that spot?
