SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional adds to SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard with more powerful and sophisticated simulation capabilities, to help you answer engineering challenges with complex load scenarios and multi-physics solutions.
Product Engineers can efficiently evaluate structural product performance under a wide range of physical scenarios using the powerful virtual testing environment of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional.
Fully embedded with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional enables engineers to determine product mechanical resistance, product durability, natural frequencies, and test heat transfer and buckling instabilities. Pressure vessel analysis and complex loading is also supported. You can optimise products for weight, natural frequency or instability based on a range of physical and geometrical parameters.
Backed by the unrivalled support of Australia and New Zealand’s largest team of Certified SOLIDWORKS engineers, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional includes:
> Structural optimisation: perform structural optimization analysis during design to reach the best available strength-to-weight, frequency, or stiffness performance for your designs
> Motion analysis: conduct detailed motion analysis and evaluate the mechanical performance of your design
> Thermal analysis: carry out thermal analysis to ensure that every component and assembly performs properly within expected temperature ranges, and spot safety issues before they arise
> Linear stress analysis: quickly and efficiently validate quality, performance, and safety – all while creating the design
> Fatigue analysis: carry out fatigue analysis and predict component fatigue failures during the design phase
> Structural analysis: carry out structural simulation on parts and assemblies with finite element analysis (FEA) while you work to improve and validate performance – and reduce the need for costly prototypes or design changes later on
Raise the quality of your products and reduce costs for live prototypes, with SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional.
