This video covers overview of SolidWorks Simulation for Finite Element Analysis (FEA), SolidWorks Motion for Kinematic analysis, SolidWorks FlowSimulation for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis. This video also shows how to add in products with the SolidWorks Student Edition and SolidWorks Education Edition and takes overview of the Finite Element Method. How does SolidWorks solve FEA equations is also shown.
Modeling an FSAE Frame in SolidWorks - Part 2: video tutorial is a follow up to the first frame modeling tutorial. This video covers the modeling of suspension tabs and gives some tips for using the built in design journal.
This sustainability Education video explains the concepts and terms behind Sustainabiity Engineering and the Life Cycle Assessment Process. In product design, students are required to understand how material selection, manufacturing process, and geography affect environmental factors. Major topics covered in this video are as follows: What is Sustainable Engineering?Life Cycle Assessment - LCAEnvironmental Impact FactorsWhat is Carbon Footprint?What is Total Energy Consumed? What is Air Acidification?What is Water Eutrophication?Why SolidWorks Sustainability?Why SolidWorks Sustainability in the classroom?SolidWorks Sustainability MethodologyDownload this presentation in pdf format.
In this SolidWorks Video Tutorial static analysis of bicycle frame is shown. Topics covered in this tutorial are: Create a study of static analysis using girder gridAssigning material to the partAdding loads and fixtures to jointsRunning the studyView of the main results of static analysisSolidWorks Static Analysis: Part 1
SolidWorks Simulation allows you to determine which variation of a design is better without having to create physical prototypes. In this example there are three frame designs and we need to select the strongest.
In SolidWorks 2009 & above versions you can easily create a sheet metal part with the enhanced Convert to Sheet Metal feature. By creating a simple solid then selecting edges and faces SolidWorks will wrap sheet metal geometry around it. The following video will show you how easy it is to use the feature.
In this SolidWorks video tutorial a complete process of creating a weldments frame and creating a sheet metal part has been shown. First 2D & 3D sketch commands are used to create a frame. Using weldments tool this sketch has been converted to structural frame. Then this frame has been transferred to assembly environment where in a next part is created using sheet metal. In this tutorial following playground slide is created step by step from scratch.
Planar Simplification and Enhanced Beam Analysis : Achieve faster analysis of parts with uniform sections through the use of planar simplification to represent the parts’ geometry, rather than analyzing the entire structure. Analyze beams more thoroughly by varying loads along their length to accurately simulate real-world conditions.
