This course is designed for SolidWorks users to become productive quickly with all the modules of the SolidWorks Simulation Professional Bundle. It offers a comprehensive hands-on training on the applications of SolidWorks Simulation. This 2 day course will provide an in-depth coverage on the basics of Finite Element Analysis, covering the entire analysis process from meshing to evaluation of results for parts and assemblies.

The class discusses linear stress analysis, gap/contact analysis, frequency and buckling, heat transfer and thermal stress analyses, optimization, fatigue and others. Analysis features are discussed using an integrated approach of the SolidWorks Simulation software from within the SolidWorks environment. Finally, examples of parts and assemblies including those with various gap/contact conditions are reviewed.
