Chapter 1, “Introduction to FEA and SOLIDWORKS Simulation,” discusses
introduction to SOLIDWORKS Simulation, various types of analysis,
introduction to finite element analysis (FEA), and different phases of finite
element analysis (FEA): Pre-processing, Solution, and Post-processing. Also, it
introduces various terms and definitions used in finite element analysis (FEA).
This chapter also discusses different types of elements, the application areas of
FEA, system requirements for installing SOLIDWORKS Simulation, and
SOLIDWORKS interface. Besides, this chapter discusses how to invoke
different SOLIDWORKS documents and how to start with SOLIDWORKS
Simulation.
Chapter 2, “Create, Import, and Prepare Geometry,” discusses how to invoke
different environments of SOLIDWORKS for creating models, how to open an
existing SOLIDWORKS model, how to import a model created in another CAD
software, and how to import a neutral file. It also introduces how to prepare a
model in SOLIDWORKS Simulation for performing an analysis.
Chapter 3, “Introduction to Analysis Tools and Static Analysis,” introduces
various assumptions for considering the linear static analysis problem and how
to start with it in SOLIDWORKS Simulation. This chapter also introduces how
to define the analysis unit and material properties for geometry. It also discusses
about adding a new material and customizing the material properties. Besides, it
introduces boundary conditions (fixtures and loads) and meshing geometry.
Chapter 4, “Case Studies of Static Analysis,” discusses various case studies of
linear static analysis: Static Analysis of a Rectangular Plate, Static Analysis of a
Bracket with Mesh Control, Static Analysis of a Symmetrical Model, StaticAnalysis of a Torispherical Head with Shell Elements, and Static Analysis of a
Weldment Frame with Beam Elements.
Chapter 5, “Contacts and Connectors,” discusses various contacts and
connectors available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Besides, it introduces how
to perform the static analysis of various case studies having contact problems:
Static Analysis of a Hook Assembly with Contacts, Static Analysis of a Flange
Assembly with Bolt Connectors, and Static Analysis of an Assembly with Edge
Weld Connectors.
Chapter 6, “Adaptive Mesh Methods,” discusses different Adaptive meshing
methods (H-Adaptive and P-Adaptive) and how to setup an analysis with them.
Chapter 7, “Buckling Analysis,” introduces the concept of the buckling analysis
and how to perform the buckling analysis of different case studies: Buckling
Analysis of a Pipe Support, Buckling Analysis of a Beam.
Chapter 8, “Fatigue Analysis,” discusses about the failure of a design due to the
fatigue when the design undergoes cyclic loads. It also introduces how to
perform the fatigue analysis.
Chapter 9, “Frequency Analysis,” introduces how to perform the frequency
analysis to calculate the natural/resonant frequencies, the mode shapes
associated to each natural frequencies, and the mass participations in X, Y, and Z
directions.
Chapter 10, “Non-Linear Static Analysis,” introduces various assumptions for
considering the non-linear static analysis problems. Also, this chapter discusses
different iterative methods (Newton-Raphson (NR) scheme and Modified
Newton-Raphson (MNR) scheme) and incremental methods (Force,
Displacement, and Arc Length) to find the equilibrium solutions for the nonlinear analysis. This chapter also discusses different types of nonlinearities
(material nonlinearities, geometric nonlinearities, and contact nonlinearities) and
how to perform the non-linear analysis of various case studies: Non-Linear
Static Analysis of a Shackle, Non-Linear Static Analysis of a Handrail Clamp
Assembly, and Non-Linear Static Analysis of a Cantilever Beam.
