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.
Linear static analysis of parts and assemblies
Contact stress analysis
Frequency (modal) analysis
Drop test analysis
Random vibration analysis
h and p adaptive solution methods
Implementation of FEA in the design process
Management of FEA projects
