Linear Stress Analysis

SOLIDWORKS Simulation linear stress analysis allows designers and engineers to validate product quality performance and safety throughout the design creation.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation integrates seamlessly with the design process, allowing you to run linear stress analysis directly from your SOLIDWORKS CAD model resulting in fewer costly prototypes, reduced rework and delays and greater time and cost efficiency.

Overview

Using linear stress analysis, calculate geometry stress and deformation with three basic assumptions:
  • The selected part or assembly under load will deform with small rotations and displacements
  • Any product loading will remain static (ignoring inertia) and stay constant over time
  • The material has a constant stress / strain relationship (Hooke’s Law)
SOLIDWORKS Simulation utilises finite element analysis (FEA) method in order to decretise design components down into solid, shell or beam elements, using linear stress analysis to define the response of parts and assemblies when applied to the effect of:
  • Forces
  • Pressures
  • Accelerations
  • Temperatures
  • Contact between components
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.
