Book Description

Engineering Analysis with SolidWorks Simulation 2012 goes beyond the standard software manual. Its unique approach concurrently introduces you to the SolidWorks Simulation 2012 software and the fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) through hands-on exercises. A number of projects are presented using commonly used parts to illustrate the analysis features of SolidWorks Simulation. Each chapter is designed to build on the skills, experiences and understanding gained from the previous chapters.

Topics covered:

  • Linear static analysis of parts and assemblies
  • Contact stress analysis
  • Frequency (modal) analysis
  • Buckling analysis
  • Thermal analysis
  • Drop test analysis
  • Nonlinear analysis
  • Dynamic analysis
  • Random vibration analysis
  • h and p adaptive solution methods
  • Modeling techniques
  • Implementation of FEA in the design process
  • Management of FEA projects
  • FEA terminology

5FEA for solidworks
By Amazon Customer
Good easy to follow guide for performing finite element analysis with solidworks. As with other books by the same publisher, the tutorials are easy to follow and provide a good understanding of how to use solidworks.

4As expected
By Miss Haha
I only saved 75% on my books this semester by buying international versions online rather than buying from the bookstore. This was an excellent version. Bigger than the students around me but no issues with conversions. Everything was exactly the same.

5Very good as a learning aid
By Paulo Rodi
The book contents are easy to assimilate and bring very useful hints on how to better use the several SW-2012 simultaion tools. I recommend this book as an useful aid for those who are self-learning.
