Simulation Premium Capabilities

Listed below, are some of the powerful features that SolidWorks Premium users benefit from. With the addition of standard part libraries, utilities that will search for design errors, fasteners and tools that will automatically estimate your manufacturing costs, the capabilities are endless. If you would like to know more or have any questions, please use the box below.

Drop Test Analysis

Find out quickly and efficiently how dropping a product onto a “floor” will affect its structural integrity using drop test analysis with SolidWorks Simulation. Understanding impact strength is an important consideration to ensure an adequate service life for many portable products. Multiple drops must be accounted for to ensure that the product continues to perform correctly and meets requirements for strength and safety. Tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD, drop test analysis using SolidWorks Simulation can be a regular part of your design process—reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework or delays, and saving time and development costs.

Thermal Structural Analysis

Determine thermal effects on a given design—or the impact of design changes on component temperatures—using fast, efficient thermal structural analysis with SolidWorks Simulation. Tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD, thermal structural analysis using SolidWorks Simulation can be a regular part of your design process—reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Plastic and Rubber Part Analysis

Quickly and efficiently carry out stress analysis of plastic components and rubber parts with SolidWorks Simulation while you design to optimize material selection and part design, ensuring high product quality, performance, and safety. Tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD, stress analysis of plastic and rubber parts using SolidWorks Simulation can be a regular part of your design process—reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Vibration Analysis

Uncover potential issues early and make adjustments during design by conducting vibration analysis with SolidWorks Simulation. You can identify trouble spots that could cause problems (such as, resonance, fatigue, and assembly techniques) and avoid costly rework and delays during the prototype phase. SolidWorks Simulation provides detailed vibration data through frequency analysis and dynamic analysis to ensure product performance and safety. Vibration analysis is an important consideration when an applied load is not constant (static), inducing unstable modes of vibration (resonance) which result in a shortened service life and cause unexpected failures.

Frequency Analysis

Quickly and efficiently investigate the natural frequencies of a design—with and without loads and boundary conditions—with easy-to-use SolidWorks Simulation. Ensure that the natural modes of vibration are away from environmental forcing frequencies, indicating that the design will meet the required service life. Tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD, frequency analysis using SolidWorks Simulation can be a regular part of your design process, reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Finite Element Analysis

Efficiently optimize and validate each design step using fast-solving, CAD integrated SolidWorks Simulation to ensure quality, performance, and safety. Tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD, SolidWorks Simulation solutions and capabilities can be a regular part of your design process—reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Linear Stress Analysis

Linear stress analysis with SolidWorks Simulation enables designers and engineers to quickly and efficiently validate quality, performance, and safety—all while creating their design. Tightly integrated with SolidWorks CAD, linear stress analysis using SolidWorks Simulation can be a regular part of your design process, reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Structural Analysis

CAD-embedded SolidWorks Simulation enables every designer and engineer to carry out structural simulation on parts and assemblies with finite element analysis (FEA) while they work to improve and validate performance and reduce the need for costly prototypes or design changes later on. Structural simulation covers a wide range of FEA problems—from the performance of a part under a constant load to the stress analysis of a moving assembly under dynamic loading, all of which can be determined using SolidWorks Simulation tools.
