Parameters Dialog Box solidworks simulation

Creates parameters that you can link to model dimensions, global variables, materials, and features from Simulation or Motion studies. You can also edit or delete existing parameters. You can use parameters in Design Studies and link them to variables that can be changed with each iteration of an evaluation or …

Using Test Data for Mooney and Ogden Material Models

When defining Mooney Rivlin and Ogden hyper elastic models for nonlinear studies, you have two options: Define constants directly in the Properties tab of the Material dialog. Provide test data for the program to evaluate the constants internally. Defining Hyperelastic Material Using Test Data You can provide test data to …

Large Strain Analysis solidworks simulation

In the theory of large strain plasticity, a logarithmic strain measure is defined as:  where U is the right stretch tensor usually obtained from the right polar decomposition of the deformation gradient F (i.e., F = R U; R is the rotation tensor). The incremental logarithmic strain is estimated as:  …

Linear Elastic Isotropic Model solidworks simulation

A material is said to be isotropic if its properties do not vary with direction. Isotropic materials therefore have identical elastic modulus, Poisson’s ratio, coefficient of thermal expansion, thermal conductivity, etc. in all directions. The term isothermal is sometimes used to denote materials with no preferred directions for coefficients of …

Managing Favorite Materials solidworks simulation

Managing favorites maintains the materials Favorites list, available when you right-click the Material item in the FeatureManager design tree. From the Favorites list, you can quickly apply a material without displaying the Material dialog box. To manage favorites: In a part document, right-click Material in the FeatureManager design tree and …

terial Properties in Simulation

Elastic Modulus Elastic Modulus in the global X, Y, and Z directions. For a linear elastic material, the elastic modulus in a certain direction is defined as the stress value in that direction that causes a unit strain in the same direction. Also, it is equal to the ratio between …

Surface to Surface Contact solidworks simulation

Facts about surface to surface contact: More general than node to node and node to surface contacts. Suitable for complex contacts with general loading. Does not require compatible mesh between source and target faces. Allows faces only as source and target entities. The program selects the candidates for source and …
