FEA Advanced Suite Training


Duration: 4.0 Day/s
Prerequisites:Knowledge of SOLIDWORKS and basic mechanical engineering concepts is recommended.

The best value for what you get! This 4-day class, created for SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium users, will raise FEA skills to the next level! The first part of the course will teach you the basic and advanced topics in non-linear stress analysis. You will learn how to deal with models that exhibit large displacements and/or yielding, discuss and practice the use of many material models available in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium and, most importantly, how to drive a non-linear analysis to successful completion. The second part of the course will expose you to various advanced topics in Dynamics. The material covered includes the time-dependent analysis, harmonic analysis and random vibrations. (Note, this course is a combination of the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Nonlinear and SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Dynamics courses).
