Viewing Results solidworks simulation

You can view contour plots of stress, displacement, and strains at the instants that the program stored results at all locations. You can also graph response at the pre-selected locations (vertices and reference points) at the specified resolution. For example, suppose that you set the observation time to 10 microseconds, …

Result Options solidworks simulation

Drop test studies generate large amount of information due to the small time increments that the solver internally uses to calculate the response. To save on disk storage, the program does NOT save all results it computes. Instead, it gives you options to specify the number of equally spaced instants …

Contact solidworks simulation

The program defines contact conditions between the body and the impact plane automatically. You can define contact conditions between faces of different components in an assembly. For component contact conditions, only Allow Penetration and Bonded (No clearance) are allowed. For local contact sets, the No penetration contact option is available …

Materials solidworks simulation

You can use linear elastic isotropic and bilinear von Mises plasticity material models. Unlike materials with linear elastic formulation, von Mises plastic materials can incur permanent deformation due to the impact. You can specify to use the small or large displacement formulation in the properties of the study. The default …

Setup solidworks simulation

The Drop Test Setup PropertyManager allows you to setup the following options of the drop test study: You define the drop height (h), the acceleration of gravity (g), and the orientation of the impact plane. The program calculates the velocity (V) at impact from: V = (2gh)1/2. The body moves …

Performing Nonlinear Analysis solidworks simulation

Notes on Defining Nonlinear Studies When defining a nonlinear study, you can choose a static  or dynamic  study. Nonlinear studies are solved in the time domain. Nonlinear analysis requires specifying a solution control method. The interface uses the Force control method by default as it is the proper choice in …

Termination Schemes solidworks simulation

For an incremental procedure based on iterative methods to be effective, practical termination schemes should be provided. At the end of each iteration, convergence should be evaluated within realistic tolerances. Very loose tolerances will lead to inaccurate results, while very strict tolerances can needlessly increase the computational cost. A bad …
