SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional
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 optimize products for weight, vibration, or instability based on a range of physical and geometrical parameters. With tight integration and a consistent user interface across SOLIDWORKS solutions, you can use the powerful capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional early in the design process to maximize product quality and reduce costs.
Explore features spanning the entire SOLIDWORKS Simulation product line including:
Thermal Fluid Analysis
Easily investigate the impact of cooling and design changes on component temperatures using thermal fluid analysis in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. You can quickly determine the impact of fluids flowing in and around the design to ensure correct thermal performance, product quality, and safety.
Perform structural optimization analysis during design using CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation to reach the best available strength-to-weight, frequency, or stiffness performance for your designs, and cut costly prototypes, eliminate rework and save time and development costs.
Conduct detailed motion analysis and evaluate the mechanical performance of your design using CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation, SOLIDWORKS Motion, and finite element analysis (FEA).
Uncover potential issues early and make adjustments during design by conducting vibration analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation. You can identify trouble spots that could cause problems (such as, resonance, fatigue, and assembly techniques) and avoid costly rework and delays during the prototype phase.
CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables every designer and engineer to carry out thermal analysis at any stage of design to ensure that every component and assembly performs properly within expected temperature ranges, and spot safety issues before they arise.
Nonlinear stress analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables designers and engineers to quickly and efficiently analyze stresses and deformations under general conditions while they are creating their design to ensure high quality, performance, and safety.
Finite Element Analysis
Efficiently optimize and validate each design step using fast-solving, CAD integrated SOLIDWORKS Simulation to ensure quality, performance, and safety.
Linear Stress Analysis
Linear stress analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables designers and engineers to quickly and efficiently validate quality, performance, and safety—all while creating their design.
Carry out fatigue analysis and predict component fatigue failures during the design phase with CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation. You can then adjust your design or define a preventive maintenance schedule to reduce warranty costs and maximize product life.
CAD-embedded SOLIDWORKS Simulation enables every designer and engineer to carry out structural simulation on parts and assemblies with finite element analysis (FEA) while they work to improve and validate performance and reduce the need for costly prototypes or design changes later on.
