Nonlinear stress analysis is able to determine and analyse the stresses and deformations of products under the most general loading and material conditions for:
Dynamic (time reliant) loads
Large component deformations
Nonlinear materials such as rubbers or metals beyond their yield point
Loads can be imported from a variety of studies including thermal, flow and motion in order to run multiphysics analysis.
When running a stress analysis component data is key, the SOLIDWORKS material database is prepopulated with materials ready for use within SOLIDWORKS Simulation and can be easily customised to meet any specific material requirements.
