    The Cutting Edge of Design - Part 9: Drop Test Simulation

    July 19, 2021

    SIMULIA Structural Mechanics Engineer (SME) is one of the roles in the 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation product portfolio. This role allows the use of Explicit Dynamics solver for high-speed nonlinear analysis such as Impact Analysis and Drop Testing. Users can apply complex material models that are readily available in the material database or use the Material Calibration tool to import experimental material test data.

    In our last session of this project, we reviewed 3D printing of this prototype. In this installment, we will walk through the use of drop test simulation.

    Top 5 SustainabilityXpress Features You Already Have

    September 11, 2020

    While corporations focus on product innovation, they also need to consider their products' environmental impact and the product development process. Sustainability helps to balance modernization, improve our quality of life and protect our planet and environment for our future generations. For businesses to thrive, sustainability can no longer be delegated to an individual or a special team. Sustainability is an integral strategy secured throughout the entire corporate strategy.

    Top 5 Reasons Why Simulation Analyst is a Needed Skill

    April 20, 2020

    Our world is a highly nonlinear and dynamic 3D domain. To develop products that are of high quality and robust to survive the real-world conditions, it is important to test the product’s behavior and performance prior to manufacturing. Simultaneously, there is the need to accelerate product innovation and cut down the time to market. This is where simulation technology for virtual testing can help you remain ahead of your competition.

    Top 5 FloXpress Features You Already Have

    March 30, 2020

    Did you know that every license of SOLIDWORKS includes the SOLIDWORKS FloXpress application? FloXpress is a computational fluid dynamics tool that evaluates the flow of fluid in a single internal cavity within parts and assemblies. Once you run a calculation on the velocity field, problem areas in your design will pop up, and you can improve them before manufacturing any parts. Different from SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, which is meant for complex fluid analyses, FloXpress is specifically designed to analyze fluid flow in a fully enclosed volume that includes at least one inlet and one outlet.

    Defining Rubber-Like Materials in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium

    October 18, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium enables you to virtually test real-life scenarios more accurately. It provides you with a wide variety of material models for nonlinear analyses. Elastomers such as rubber, neoprene etc. are materials that go through large deformation very rapidly with relatively a low value of stress or applied load. In this article, we go over the different hyper elasticity material models available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation and how to use them to work with these types of materials.

    Thermal Stress Analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation

    September 9, 2019

    When you are designing a product, it is important to accurately analyze the varied temperatures to ensure the stability of your model. Thermal stress analysis refers to a static analysis that measures the strains, stresses and deformations that occur with changes in temperature. SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables you to test multiple conditions from static and dynamic response to heat transfer. In this blog article, we use a stainless-steel instant pot to illustrate how to properly utilize the thermal stress analysis feature for improved temperature resistance.

    An Introduction to SOLIDWORKS Plastics

    July 29, 2019

    A day without using plastic parts is unimaginable. From consumer electronics to children’s toys, kitchen gadgets and medical devices, the use of components made from plastic materials has steadily increased. The majority of these plastics parts are produced through injection molding, the process of injecting liquefied plastic materials into a mold, cooling or solidification of the material and ejection of the molded part.
