Book Description

Engineering Analysis with SolidWorks Simulation 2013 goes beyond the standard software manual. Its unique approach concurrently introduces you to the SolidWorks Simulation 2013 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

4Solidworks Simulation book
By nbrady
I recommend NASTRAN & PATRAN or more industry accepted software applications but if you have Solidworks Simulation this book is a good start. It is very rudimentary but I have not gotten further than chapter 17 thus far. The examples are simple, easy to follow, but have allowed me to already start incorporating Solidworks Simulation design into household projects. If you have Solidworks this book is a good start to get you off the ground I'd say, but if you are going for skill in the professional industry for FEA I recommend moving to NASTRAN & PATRAN as previously stated.

Exercises are simple. This a barebones introduction to Solidworks Simulation. Expect errors and a whole lot of assumptions. Not in-depth at all. This is best for a complete beginner.
