To complete a linear static analysis of an assembly in SOLIDWORKS Simulation, many steps need to be followed. In this course, SOLIDWORKS Simulation - Linear Static Assembly Analysis, you will be guided through each of these steps to ensure accuracy from start to finish. First, you will see the basics of Finite Element Analysis. From there, you will complete the setup of materials, connections, fixtures, loads, and mesh. After you run the analysis, you will interpret the results. After completing this course, setting up and running a linear static stress analysis on an assembly will be much easier and you will be prepared to do it on your own in the future. Software required: SOLIDWORKS 2017.

More from the author

Hello, my name is Corey Bower. Welcome to my course SOLIDWORKS Simulation – Linear Static Assembly Analysis. I am an Elite application engineer at GoEngineer. Who is a SOLIDWORKS reseller that sells to and supports customers on the west coast, south central United States and the rocky mountain area. As an application engineer I teach, support and demonstrate SOLIDWORKS, SOLIDWORKS Simulation and many other SOLIDWORKS add-ins.

In this course we will complete all of the steps necessary for a Linear Static Assembly Analysis. The major topics we will learn are:

  • Contacts - Which define the interaction between components
  • Connectors - Which virtually connect components together
  • Advanced Boundary Conditions - Which can simulate complex real world conditions
By the end of this course you will be able to setup and run a Linear Static Assembly Analysis.

Before beginning this course you should be comfortable with the SOLIDWORKS Interface and Linear Static Part Analysis.

I hope you will join me on this journey with SOLIDWORKS Simulation – Linear Static Assembly Analysis at Pluralsight.
