This course is designed for those less familiar with the broader concepts of stress analysis and is divided in to three main sections. Initially attendees will be introduced to the engineering terminology associated with stress analysis and how they relate to each other. Hand calculated examples will be used to reinforce these principles.
The course will then move on to explain the background of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) using the Simulation Xpress module found in SOLIDWORKS Standard. Using this functionality and learning how to interpret the results obtained will close this section.
Finally, attendees with be introduced to the capabilities offered by the further Simulation products that are available to our customers. This will give users an understanding of how the functionality on offer relates to the real life Failure Modes they are trying to anticipate. To finish the course general advice for preparing CAD modelling in preparation for Simulation is given.
