SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional
Make intelligent design decisions using the multi-criteria optimization tools in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional. Run a variety of virtual scenarios and optimize your design for weight, vibration or instability. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional will analyze mechanical resistance, product durability, natural frequencies, heat transfer and buckling instabilities. Pressure vessel analysis and complex loading is also supported.
In addition to all the features found in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional offers:
- Design optimization (based on Simulation data)
- Advanced contacts and connectors
- Event-based motion, frequency, buckling or collapse, structural thermal, drop test, pressure vessel design and submodeling simulation
- 2D simplification
- Load case manager
Validate product performance and safety factors using finite element analysis (FEA) to perform structural simulation.
Calculate temperatures and heat transfer within and between components.
Optimize heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems quickly and easily.
Predict component fatigue failures by examining repeated or random load cycles.
Examine how vibrating or unstable modes can shorten equipment life to eliminate failures.
Optimize a design to meet defined strength-to-weight, frequency, or stiffness performance.
Evaluate mechanical performance through operational movements using rigid body motion analysis.
Fluid Flow Analysis
Simulate fluid (either liquid or gas) passing through or around an object and investigate the impact to improve product performance.
Optimize heat dissipation and the selection of electronic devices.
Assess the environmental impacts of your designs in real time using life cycle assessment (LCA) criteria.
Integrated Simulation Workflows
Efficiently test product performance with multi-physics testing, taking into account various physical environments.
